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.

Art You Can Sit On
Art You Can Sit On is a collaborative project with the Idaho Falls Arts Council, the Idaho Falls Historic Downtown Foundation, the City of Idaho Falls Division of Parks and Recreation and the City Beautification Commission.
The art benches were selected from over 250 submitted designs by area artists. Funding came from local businesses and individuals.
Installation began in 2006 and we continue to add new art benches in and around historic downtown Idaho Falls and on the Greenbelt.
Download the map of historic downtown Idaho Falls and the Snake River Greenbelt to explore all of the art benches around town!
Please note that the benches, brochure, and map are currently under review and not all listed locations are accurate. We hope to have a new map and brochure in spring/summer of 2021.
