Best Place to See a Big, Blue Head

Boise Art Museum

Editors' Picks

Earlier this year, Boise Art Museum exhibited several works by renowned artist Jun Kaneko. Museum Executive Director Melanie Fales invited members of the press to come for a behind-the-scenes look at how the museum readies an exhibit. We watched as museum personnel uncrated a giant blue head. Kaneko includes precise instructions on how to show his work when he sends it to a museum and, even though the BAM folks followed them to the letter, we held our collective breaths as they used a rope and pulley system to move the extra-heavy sculpture onto a platform, planning the preciseness of the placement to a micron. If we ever need our house moved, we're calling BAM.
