Thank you Visit Sun Valley, I'm honored that you chose my work as the cover image supporting your local art scene!
The City of Ketchum and the Ketchum Arts Commission are celebrating the first “Surprise Art” project now on display on the south side of the Ketchum Innovation Center building located at 311 First Ave., N.
The city’s newest public art was created by Wood River Valley native Rudi Broschofsky. The artwork consists of metallic enamel and spray paint on five-foot-high wood panels that stretch across 36 feet of the building’s outside wall.
Broschofsky’s work, entitled “Flight,” is based on a proverb about the wise old owl. According to Broschofsky, the owl’s open wings symbolize a welcoming nature to outsiders and entrepreneurs.
Wings also “denote the idea of flight, as the KIC is a place where aspirations hatch and take flight into something more successful and concrete,” said Broschofsky, who now lives in Portland.
A nice little writeup about my family and our love for the arts with some nice highlights on my artwork as a part of the Western Pop show over the 4th of July at Broschofsky Galleries.
Throwback to the time I was picked by the Ketchum Arts Commission to be involved with their cover art project. My art was picked to be displayed on the electrical boxes in front of the newly finished Limelight Hotel on Main Street.
The holiday season kicks off at Modern West Fine Art with their annual small works exhibition.

New work by Rudi Broschofsky - In the Gallery
January 29, 2016
We are thrilled with our newest piece from Rudi Broschofsky, entitled Mt. Rushmore. Mt. Rushmore has been the longest work in progress of his paintings so far. The stencil alone took well over 50 hours to create and the final piece took over five months to complete. The work was well worth the time and effort, Broschofsky considers Mt. Rushmore to be his best painting produced to date.
Mt. Rushmore is a commentary on the controversial nature of the Mt. Rushmore monument. This piece depicts a group of Native American portraits in place of American foreFathers. George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln were carved into a mountain known to the Lakota tribe as Six Grandfathers. This mountain was seized from the Lakota’s after the great Sioux War. This piece depicts three Native Americans; Sitting Bull, Young Joseph and Three Eagles. These men are known for their accomplishments and efforts in leading their bands through a turbulent period where they were being forcibly removed from their ancestral lands.
