About the Idaho Falls Arts Council
Since its founding in 1990, the Idaho Falls Arts Council has committed to hosting an array of events, arts, performances, and venues to feature local and international talent within Idaho Falls and its surrounding areas. Now consisting of the Willard Arts Center, the historic Colonial Theater, the ARTitorium, and the Civic Center, these settings provide the means to annually raise $2.7 million toward the local community in the form of art galleries, 10 - 16 mainstage shows, 8 visual arts exhibitions, and community events all year long. The continued support of its volunteers and over 60 staff members accommodate the thousands of individuals who partake in the local arts community.

Christopher Hull lives in Idaho Falls with his wife of twelve years, and three children. He has worked with The Art Museum of Eastern Idaho to educate Idaho’s youth, which is where he discovered his passion for teaching. He has been an Art Educator in Idaho Falls for five years; teaching drawing, painting, and digital media. He is a member of the Elementary Art Committee that has been responsible for ensuring art education in Idaho District 91’s elementary schools. Recently, he earned the Art Teacher of the Year Award from the Idaho Art Educators Association.
Christopher’s personal work is primarily Lowbrow based; working in mediums of pen and ink, paints, and digital media. Pop culture and the existentialist absurd drive his creative spirit.
