Brown bag it with artist Amanda Hamilton

Bring a lunch to Sun Valley Center for the Arts in Ketchum at noon on Thursday, March 8, and join Amanda Hamilton for an informal talk and slideshow about her work, in particular the installation she created for The Center's current exhibition, Urban Lifecycles. The free program will last for an hour.

Hamilton's installation is in collaboration with the Ketchum-Sun Valley Heritage and Ski Museum and the Blaine County Historical Museum and consists of dioramas marking points in history. She also made a film called "It Happened in Sun Valley ... Or a Studio Very Much Like It" about Hollywood movies filmed in Sun Valley during the 1930s through '50s. The film will be screened on the windows of the Lane Building on the corner of Main Street and Sun Valley Road every Friday evening through April 13.
