We support artists — and with your help, we can expand that support to more international, national and local artists who have historically been underrepresented or challenged to find a spot in the arts community.
One of the best — and easiest — ways you can support artists through Surel’s Place is to donate during Idaho Gives, which runs this year from May 1 through May 4.
This is the kind of work your generous contributions support:
Our month-long artist residencies are life-changing, career-making experiences, and every time we can increase our stipends or supports we open the door to more BIPOC artists, more artists with different abilities, more artists from ALL economic backgrounds and others who face incredible hurdles in sharing their creativity and insight with the world.
Our subsidized year-long studio residencies give Idaho artists an accessible and affordable opportunity to invest in their own creative futures — and ensure that our community stays vibrant and energized by new artistic voices.
And our events such as the First Friday Art and Studio Strolls in Garden City’s Surel Mitchell Live-Work-Create District bring the community and the community’s artists together to forge new relationships, new insights into how we can face our shared challenges, and, quite frankly, have a lot of fun together!
