2020 – 2021 Exhibit Season POSTPONED
In celebration of the nation's 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage, TAM will be paying homage to women artists during its 2020-2021 exhibit season. Our first exhibition of the new season, Sisters in Retrospect: Gloria Miller Allen and Sherian Miller Lewis features six decades of work from one of eastern Idaho's most celebrated artists and her sister, Sherian, also a lifelong artist, who has made Idaho her home in recent years. An eclectic collection of 2-D and 3-D artwork in a wide array of media and subject matter, this exhibit will delight young and old. Originally scheduled to open April 9 of 2020, this exhibition has been tentatively scheduled to now open in mid-May. The Museum Artist ARTalk has also been postponed.

We truly hate to disappoint our young, exhibiting artists and their biggest fans, but at this point, we don’t expect to be able to re-open again before March 28. Check out TAM's Facebook page for a featured artist from each school! All artwork will be returned to teachers with the certificates that were not picked up.

We thank all of the talented young artists, schools, teachers and sponsors who made this year's Young at ART so amazing!

For those who helped fill TAM's front wall with delightful creations on Young at Art Family Day on March 7, please rest assured they will be kept safe until you can pick them up.

The April 25th Poetry Slam has been cancelled. The fall slam is scheduled for Saturday, October 24, 2020.
