The Blue Galleries at Boise State University has adjusted to the realities of 2020 by offering online and in person BFA Exhibitions for their graduating students.  The Fall 2020 BFA Exhibition was presented as both a limited audience gallery show and an online viewing experiences, expanding the audience from the campus community to the artists’ friends and family far and wide, prospective students everywhere, and art audiences worldwide.  The BFA Exhibition is the culminating activity for students in the Department of Art, Design, and Visual Studies completing a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Visual Art, Illustration, or Art Education.

The gallery exhibition and online show were planned by the thirteen exhibiting students and completed as part of the Art 490 BFA Exhibition course with Gallery Director and Lecturer Kirsten Furlong.

Department of Art, Design, and Visual Studies

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.
