Best Local Visual Artist

Sue Latta

Readers' Picks

Sue Latta might hail from Reno, Nev., but she puts the "local" in "Best Local Visual Artist." Earning a Masters of Fine Arts degree from Boise State University in 2007, she has taught art at Boise State and the College of Western Idaho, owns the Sculpture Studio in the Linen District and produced a number of public projects for the Idaho Commission on the Arts as well as the Boise City Arts Commission. Her work is edgy, and she works in a variety of media from photography and video to metal fabrication, woodworking and casting in plastic and bronze. Latta pushes the boundaries of art and advocacy: she took the fight for LGBT equality all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court. She's a woman with a latta heart.
