We invite you to join us for the annual Visions of Idaho Community Art Contest, proudly presented by the Salmon Arts Council. Our event celebrates the diversity of our community through various art forms. Entry into the contest is free, and each category boasts prizes. As an art enthusiast, you will relish the opportunity to connect with other artists and experience the joy of creativity. Selected artworks will be displayed at the Salmon Library from February 5th-14th, and judges, as well as the general public, can vote for their preferred pieces. Don't miss out on showcasing your talent and exploring the wide array of art created in our community. This year's theme is "when I see the mountains’ - The majestic Beaverhead and Lemhi Mountain Ranges stand watch over us, shaping our daily lives, and providing a sanctuary that we call home.
