Is love really what the world needs now, or does it just need a sandwich and a nap?
The Treasure Valley Artists' Alliance thinks it's the former, or at least it wants to explore the different ways the world can be brought together, love included.
The TVAA—which now includes more than 160 artists—is riffing off Burt Bacharach and Hal David's famous song lyrics with a new exhibition, What the World Needs Now. Artists reflect on this sentiment through work ranging from traditional Valentine's Day expressions to absurd pieces.
The exhibition includes works by 38 artists including John Killmaster, Jaki Katz Ashford, Kellie Cosho and Martin Wilke, whose ink drawings were published on two Boise Weekly covers in 2012, including the Valentine's Day issue.
The opening reception is Thursday, Feb. 14—Valentine's Day—from 5-8 p.m. And if you have plans with your sweetheart that don't include art, the exhibit will be on display weekdays from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. through Thursday, April 25.
The opening reception and exhibit are free and open to the public, and is being held at Boise State Public Radio offices on Parkcenter Boulevard.
