Annual Student Juried Exhibition at Boise State

by

Student art exhibits are enlightening in that you get a sense of the overall creativity brewing in a given institution. When they're part of a class' curriculum, though, they aren't discretionary: everyone who took the class displays his or her work, regardless of innovation or quality. Launch at Boise State's Visual Arts Center is comprised of student work, but only work chosen by juror Alice Vinson, visual artist and assistant professor of Visual Communication at the College of Idaho. Application to the exhibition was open to any student enrolled in classes offered by the Boise State Art Department and, of the 139 entries, Vinson chose 31 works by 25 artists. Launch is a chance to not only see how creative Boise State art students are but to see what heights some of them have reached.
