ISSUE 2019 | How the arts play a vital role in Boise State’s research mission
At Boise State University, we recognize that research is as foundational to the arts as it is to any other discipline.
And a vibrant arts scene cannot flourish without a strong base in research, a base that helps artists, artists-in-training and the general public understand the cultural and historical implications of their craft and more deeply appreciate how that craft reflects the human condition.
Arts faculty encourage student artists to understand the context in which their art is made, to tease out the ethical implications of an aesthetic decision and to appreciate the technologies that might help them create differently.
