January 2019 Scouted Calendar

In 2019, we’re resolving to spend more time out and about in our communities. Luckily, if January is any indication, there will be plenty of events, exhibits, and festivals to fill our calendars for the foreseeable future. From a performance of Vivaldi’s Four Seasons in Cincinnati to a prestigious wine event in Naples, here’s what we’re looking forward to next month.

Boise, Idaho

Opening January 26 and running until July 7, Jae Yong Kim: Donut Ever Forget Me puts hundreds of hand-sculpted and meticulously painted ceramic donuts—each a mini-work inspired by a famous painter—on display at the Boise Art Museum. A preview party for the exhibition with the South Korean artist will take place on Friday, January 18 at 8 p.m. {Find local recommendations for what to do and see in Boise here.}
