The local art community suffered a blow when multimedia artist Bob Neal passed away in September. Neal was as kind, funny and unconventional as he was talented, and his life will be celebrated at The Modern Bob 20th and 21st Centuries Art Show and Another Party at Visual Arts Collective. The title of the event comes in part from Neal's popular TV show Modern Bob's 21st Century Art Show, which aired on Treasure Valley Community Television, where Neal also served as board president. Episodes of Modern Bob will be screened at the event, as will a montage of the i48 Film Competition and Festival films Neal appeared in. His wife, journalist Jeanne Huff, said along with works donated for the night by local collectors, more than 40 previously unseen works of Neal's art will be on display.
