While a rich emotional life may not seem to have as tangible an effect on the rest of your life as, say, the effect created by riches showered on your bank account, it nonetheless can have just as much impact. And whether it's joy, anger or even revulsion, good art should stir the emotions and make you feel something.
So why not make a deposit into your emotional bank account?
Though art is not likely to inspire the same emotions in any two people, it's hard to imagine anyone could see Fritz Liedtke's photo series, "Skeleton in the Closet," without feeling something. The photos are gritty, intensely personal images of people battling eating disorders, paired with statements from the subjects about their struggle. Some of the images are downright uncomfortable to look at. Others brim with hope.
The exhibit can be seen in the Boise State SUB Gallery for FREE. It will be up until Tuesday, Feb. 22.
