How do I get to the Museum?

From I-15 take the Broadway exit; turn east on Broadway. After crossing the Broadway Bridge, take the first right turn (south) onto Capital Avenue. The Museum is on the right, just south of the Idaho Falls City Electrical Building (and the red/white/blue water tower).

How do I arrange a Museum tour for school children?

During school tours, students learn about art in the current exhibit, how to look at art, and how to read exhibit labeling. In addition to a guided tour of the museum, students can take part in a post-tour art lesson in our classroom. The art lesson reinforces the theme explored in the tour and gives students a hands-on opportunity to use this theme in their own work. All tours must be scheduled a minimum of two weeks in advance. For more information, please visit the ARTours page.

Does the Museum allow photography or videotaping?

Photography is not permitted in the Museum galleries. Flash photography, the use of tripods, and the use of movie or video cameras is prohibited. Photography at weddings and special events is permissible.

For press or special photography project needs, please contact the Museum Director at (208) 524-7777.

What are your current/upcoming exhibits?

How do I become a Member of the Museum?

Is the Museum accessible to people with disabilities?

The Museum is wheelchair accessible. For the convenience of our patrons, there is a wheelchair available for use inside the Museum. It is available free of charge, on a first-come, first-serve basis. Please contact TAM accessibility coordinator, Alexa Stanger for more information.

Can I host a special event or wedding at the Museum?

Yes, please visit our Rent TAM Page.

How much is my art worth?

TAM cannot perform authentications, valuations, or appraisals. You can find a certified appraiser at www.appraisers.org/find-an-appraiser or www.isa-appraisers.org/find-an-appraiser. Auction resources such as Christie’s or Sotheby’s or online auction sites like www.ebay.com or www.artprice.com can also help you learn more about the value of your artwork.

How do I exhibit my work at the museum?

While solo exhibitions in our main galleries are small in number, artists are invited to send formal proposals including images of portfolios, artist statement, résumé including exhibition history, and artist bio to Miyai Abe Griggs, mabe@theartmuseum.org. You can also mail these materials to:

The Art Museum of Eastern Idaho
300 South Capital Avenue
Idaho Falls, Idaho 83402
Attn: Miyai Abe Griggs

Please Note:

  • Exhibition proposals are reviewed on a quarterly basis. A museum representative will contact you after we have reviewed your submission.
  • Please note that while we are happy to review your work, our exhibition schedule is planned approximately two years in advance, and is carefully balanced to present our viewers with a varied artistic program in accordance with the Museum’s mission. Therefore, we are only rarely able to accommodate unsolicited submissions for exhibitions.
  • An excellent opportunity for emerging artists to introduce themselves and their work to TAM curatorial staff is to become a Museum Artist member which provides opportunities to exhibit in group shows two to three times a year.
  • The Corridor Gallery is reserved to showcase Idaho artists. Click here for more information.

How do I donate artwork to TAM?

We appreciate the generosity of our donors and our Permanent Collection Committee reviews each piece to determine if it fits TAM's collecting mission and programming needs. Please e-mail a photograph and a description of the work and how it was acquired to Miyai Abe Griggs at mabe@theartmuseum.org. You can also mail these materials to:

The Art Museum of Eastern Idaho
300 South Capital Avenue
Idaho Falls, Idaho 83402
Attn: Miyai Abe Griggs

Does the Museum buy art?

The Museum occasionally considers art for purchase within its collecting mission and policies. Please send a photograph with a letter about the object including information about how the piece was acquired and the terms of your sale. Please do not bring the work of art to the Museum unless you have made an appointment with the Museum Director.
