April 24 – May 8, 2022

Student Union Fine Arts Gallery

The College of Western Idaho Studio Art program promotes the development of artistic skills and practice, craftsmanship, and aesthetic discernment. The AA degree in Studio Art provides students with a foundational understanding of the history of visual culture, provides opportunities to grow as artists, and prepares students who are interested in transferring to a four–year college or university to complete a bachelor’s degree in art. The 2022 CWI Capstone Collection celebrates the artistic and academic achievements of these Studio Art graduates: Robert Blihovde, Emilee Brugger, Khanh Dang, Clara Geise, Cassima Grimes, Ashley Hansen, Matias Haramoto-Pete, Miyuki Henry, Jadon Hensley, Donnie Charles, Lizzy Martinez, Macie McKay, Mykayla Panchenko, Angelika Papasodora, Maximus Skeen, Mikayla Telfer, Scott Walker, and Bella Wildt. Boise State is pleased to host their first professional exhibition and hopes they find a future home at the Center for Visual Arts.

Exhibition Reception: Tuesday, April 26, 2022 4:30 – 6:30 PM. Event is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served.
