Hailey's "A Month of Art" is winding down but not without one last big show. This evening Hailey will have an Art Walk from 5-8 p.m. Enjoy wine, stroll the streets and see some of the finest work created in the Wood River Valley.

The Art Walk is a culmination of a monthlong exhibition of paintings, drawings, prints, photographs, jewelry and sculpture sponsored by the Wood River Arts Alliance, Hailey Chamber of Commerce and the Hailey Arts Commission.

Local artists teamed up with businesses all over Hailey to give the public an opportunity to enjoy art created by valley artists and craftspeople. The Month of Art will be complemented by other art events that happen throughout the summer in Hailey, including the Artists' Market, which occurs weekly on Thursdays as part of the summer Farmers' Market.

Additional arts include the Summer Fools Festival presented by Company of Fools at the Liberty Theatre, which offers a month-long rotating repertory theater featuring "110 in the Shade," "Steel Magnolias" and "Welcome Home, Jenny Sutter."

Every Wednesday night through Aug. 26, free live music can be enjoyed outdoors at the Back Alley Party at the Wicked Spud. The event benefits a different local nonprofit every week.

The Sun Valley Center for the Arts in Hailey also has regular exhibitions and programs.
