Art exhibit embraces a child’s perspective

“Looking from Many Perspectives,” a child-centered exhibition in the Student Union Building.

“Looking from Many Perspectives,” an exhibition in the Student Union Building Fine Arts Gallery, features art hung low on the wall to be especially appealing for young visitors. The exhibition runs through Aug. 16.

Eden Sanborn, a junior illustration major and curatorial assistant for the Student Union fine arts program, curated the exhibition. The first-time curator said, “Art is often created and displayed as a way to communicate, share experiences, and build connections. This process takes place every day at Boise State University and we wanted to ensure through this exhibition that young children would be involved in the discussion and viewing of art.”

Sanborn chose pieces in the exhibition to attract the attention of children using a variety of depth, colors, shapes, and subjects.

The exhibition is in cooperation with the Children’s Center at Boise State. It is free and open to all visitors, students, staff, and community members. The Fine Arts Gallery is located at 1700 University Dr. on the second floor of the Student Union Building. Parking is available for an hourly fee in metered spaces and in the Lincoln and Brady Garages.
