Ming Studios has never been afraid to go big—and that's what it did at its first anniversary party, May 1 Day 1 Year 2. With art hanging on the walls by most-recent artist-in-residence Marijn van Kreij, who left Boise today for Big Bend, Texas, and two separate music and dance performance areas, it was attended by roughly 50 people and featured performances by Ming regulars like Tim Andreae, Project Flux and the 208 Ensemble.

Since its inception one year ago, Ming has brought to Boise artists like muralist Axel Void, Uli Westphal and Boise sign-maker Noel Weber, as well as visiting scholars like Kerstin Winking of the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam.

"The objective that we have is to introduce Idaho to these international artists—and introduce these international artists to Idaho," said Ming Studios Founder and Executive Director Jason Morales.
