Color Our World

Memory Park 580 N Main St., Ketchum

Color Our World is The Advocates' largest annual fundraising event. This seasonal giving celebration culminates with an installation of colorful ribbons adorning Memory Park in Ketchum; each ribbon is a visual representation of a donation made. During the months of May and June, we will be inviting our community to purchase raffle tickets for six amazing prizes and donate ribbons to be displayed in the park. It is our goal that by July 1, 2024, the trees in Memory Park will be festooned with ribbons, tying all of us together in the quest to eradicate domestic violence and abuse, and empower all in their pursuit of peace, health, happiness, and freedom. This year’s Color Our World Ribbon Raise is a ticketed party on Friday, June 21 at Limelight Hotel. Tickets are $50 per person and include appetizers, drinks, ribbon raise and music. Reserved tables are also available and feature concierge cocktail services, table appetizers, and preferential seating. Your support provides help today and hope for tomorrow. Together, we are saving lives and changing futures. For details or to donate, please visit

Event Series Nick Brandt: SINK/RISE

Nick Brandt: SINK/RISE

Gilman Contemporary 661 Sun Valley Rd, Sun Valley

Sink/Rise continues photographer Nick Brandt’s series “The Day May Break” which eloquently captures communities who are affected by environmental destruction. The local people in these photos, photographed underwater off the coast of the Fijian islands, are representatives of the many people whose homes, land and livelihoods will be lost in the coming decades as the water rises. “Although they are several meters below the surface, the subjects of Brandt’s mesmerizing photographs do not float or swim. Incredibly, they sit on sofas, stand on chairs, use seesaws, and pose in ways they might on land. The effect is otherworldly, as though the familiar laws of physics have stalled in this strange, liminal zone between land and sea.” (Zoe Lescaze) The artist himself will further illuminate his creative process and the ethos behind "Sink / Rise" during a speaking engagement at The Community Library in Ketchum, ID, on July 11.
