Event Information

The 37th annual Art Under the Elms is a three-day art/artisan fair presented by Lewis-Clark State College’s Center for Arts & History, a nonprofit organization focused on engaging audiences through the arts and humanities. The event takes place on the main campus of Lewis-Clark State College in Lewiston, Idaho, which is part of the Lewis-Clark Valley. All proceeds from the event support the Center’s programming through exhibitions, public programs, and arts education initiatives.

Art Under the Elms is the highlight of a month-long community celebration called the Dogwood Festival. Various organizations across the Lewis-Clark Valley plan events to celebrate the season, thus attracting visitors from across the region. Art Under the Elms will also coincide with Lewis-Clark State College’s Family Weekend, which draws families and friends of current students as well as alumni to the college.

Continuing with changes implemented in 2022, this long-standing event will be free and open to the public and include an Emerging Artists exhibition space as part of the Center’s commitment to making the arts more inclusive and accessible. The festival will include an arts marketplace, a line-up of music, dance, and theater performances, an educational space for artist demonstrations and workshops, and a selection of food trucks.
