2023 Biennial Faculty Exhibition. January 19-March 26. Blue Galleries in the Center for the Visual Arts

Biennial exhibition featuring new work by twenty-eight nationally and internationally recognized artists teaching in the department of Art, Design, and Visual Studies at Boise State University.  This biennial showcases the recent creative projects and research by full time and part time faculty.

The Department of Art, Design, and Visual Studies at Boise State University is a vibrant center of excellence in art and design that educates and prepares students to be innovative, creative problem solvers, critical thinkers and globally-engaged citizens. Working within diverse cultural and visual contexts, we value inclusivity and experimentation, encourage risk-taking, and through our research and practice advance knowledge in our field. The faculty embraces traditional and contemporary approaches toward materials, forms, techniques, and ideas, while always seeking the refinements, innovations, and inversions that allow art to convey meaning and agency. We share with our students the physical and intellectual experience of art and craft and assist them with acquiring the skills and knowledge to practice as artists, art teachers, art theorists and historians, designers, and illustrators.
