In addition to the art-filled nooks and crannies of Café Aroma, the establishment also features the work of artists in the revolving collection.

The featured artist for May 2017 is Idyllwild Arts student Audrey Carver.

Art is how I interpret the world around me. When I was two years old, I loved to color. Pieces of paper, the walls, the floor and even my feet were all potential masterpieces. By five, I was painting and drawing everything I experienced, from wildlife to kids on the playground. My home in Idyllwild has been a constant source of inspiration; our beautiful, strange community where it can be more acceptable to be a barefoot artist than a lawyer or doctor. Now, at 17, I am finishing my time at Idyllwild Arts Academy and participating in a creative internship with the Climate Science Alliance. From here I will be attending Tufts in Boston, and hopefully continuing to develop my art, working both figuratively and conceptually.
