The Department of Art, Design, and Visual Studies unequivocally condemns the Russian Government’s decision to invade Ukraine, waging full-scale war of the magnitude unseen in Europe for decades. This unprovoked and unjustified act of aggression is a callous disregard of the UN Charter, human life, and democratic freedoms.
We stand in solidarity with the people of Ukraine, and all those who have been affected by this senseless war.
Please consider petitioning your House Representative, your Senator, and your local government to aid Ukraine and the Ukrainian refugees in this moment of need.
If you wonder how you can legitimately help as an individual, consider one of the options listed here.
Students who have been personally affected, contact the Dean of Students office and ask for help - [email protected] - or visit their website.

Members of the faculty and staff who would like assistance, please contact Counseling Services.
Boise State University Department of Art, Design, & Visual Studies faculty and double alum Erin Cunningham recently completed the commission of the Dr. Marlene Tromp Presidential Portrait.

At the unveiling of the portrait during a reception and viewing last week in the Center for the Visual Arts, Cunningham gave an eloquent speech on her Boise State experience and the artistic process for the portrait.

"In this picture I sought to transcend the limitations of conventional portraiture rooted in making a record of an individual’s appearance at a moment in time- towards making something that had a unique character of its own as a work of art. As I began to determine how to best represent the president, I thought back to our conversations in her office. Each time I was greeted outside of her office directly by her as though she had been awaiting our meeting. I had no doubt that there were copious amounts of tasks awaiting on her daily agenda, but there was never an inkling of anything lurking outside of our conversations.

It was so refreshing to talk with someone who had so much to share and who wanted to hear what I had to say in return. From watching her speeches, seeing her on campus and lurking on her Instagram, I got the feeling this was how she always was when she could speak with someone one on one. She is vibrant, thoughtful, generous, outrageously smart and can take you on an intellectual voyage at a moment’s notice.

In the painting, I seek to engage the viewer in the same way, to reach through the surface of the paint to engage you in conversation with this subject. Her presence should come through the work, rather than just her likeness."

Dr. Marlene Tromp, the university's seventh president, responded with a statement about the artist, and what the portrait means to Boise State, "Artist Erin Cunningham is first in her family to earn a college degree. She is not only a creator, she thrives in the face of extraordinary odds. I am so moved by this portrait; so proud that it was painted by one of our own faculty members and, most especially, that it was Erin Cunningham."

"This portrait isn’t about me, though I’m deeply and profoundly honored that I was its subject, it is about Boise State and what it can mean for all first-gen students to imagine their futures in new ways. I am also proud that it speaks to the role of the visual arts at a university. Boise State’s commitment to the arts, is a commitment to the soul of our work," said Dr. Tromp.

The Presidential Portrait. oil on wood panel, is now part of the "From the Collections: Portraits" exhibition at the Boise State University Student Union Fine Arts gallery through November 14, in collaboration with Albertsons Library Special Collections and Archives. Free and open to the public.

Associate professor of biology Allan Albig and his daughter Roxy are the dream-team when it comes to writing, illustrating and publishing a book on molecular biology. This fall, they self-published “It’s not magic, it’s biology: a guided tour through your molecular world”, with the goal of explaining the science behind phenomenon that seem, well, magical.

For Allan, the ‘light-bulb’ moment for writing the book was inspired by electric eels. “In one of the classes I teach, I talk about how electric eels can make a shock, and I’ve always thought to myself that this is something that probably lots of people should know about how it actually works, because it seems like magic, right?” Over the next few years, he began jotting down other topics and building a list of phenomena and everyday scientific processes people would be interested in understanding.

Boise State illustration major, Roxy Albig, helps provide context for the general audience through her creative expression of art. “I love art because it is the single most important way we can communicate with each other. Most people are visual learners. Especially when it’s a topic that is wordy or can put you to sleep with vocabulary. The brain can understand images much easier than text, and combined with the power of metaphor it can visualize a phenomenon much easier.”

"Thread Count," a multimedia art exhibit on display through October 23 in Room 110 of the Center for Visual Arts, shows Idaho's COVID death count visually through an embroidered tapestry of the 3,168 and counting state residents who've passed from the illness during the pandemic (as of Sunday, October 10, 2021).

Each starburst of stitches represents the death toll of an Idaho county, one stitch per death.

Embroidered onto a bed sheet from a local hospital, the tapestry was made collaboratively by students José Giovanni Herrera, Arlie Sommer, and Danny Wheeler. The project also expands on each stitch, or death, with audio interviews of healthcare workers, accounts from those who have witnessed COVID-19 deaths with details of how these lives were lost and the impact of the illness.

The project was created as a part of art professor Kate Walker's ART 373/473 Time Based Art class, in which the participating students thread this moment in time with historic quilting circles in rural areas, where communities often came together to quilt and discuss how to address issues they faced.

The exhibit is free and open to the community. Facial coverings are required.

A partnership agreement between Boise Art Museum and Boise State University provides free admission to all Boise State students, faculty and staff with presentation of your Boise State ID card. Check out BAM's exhibitions today!

Today, BAM opens a new installation, “Untitled" (L.A.), by Cuban-born American artist Felix Gonzalez-Torres. The artist was known for his minimalist, often conceptual, installations and sculptures that assembled quantities of a common object, such as a string of lights, stack of paper, or in the case of "Untitled" (L.A.), individually wrapped candy, to convey complex meaning and encourage audience participation. Visitors can participate in the exhibition by taking a piece of candy from the installation. Through the manner of displaying the artwork, along with the process of the viewer’s participation, the artist’s work becomes a metaphor for loss and healing.

The Department of Art, Design, and Visual Studies at Boise State University believes in the inherent dignity and unfettered potential of all human beings. We strive to foster an environment where all members of our community can work and learn free from any form of oppression or discrimination. Behavior that seeks to negatively impact the contributions of any member of our community through racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic, ageist, or ableist words or deeds is antithetical to our mission and our vision for the world that we endeavor to create. We also see words and deeds of this nature as counter to University policy and the norms that guide us in our various roles and believe that silence in the face of oppression imperils the transformative work of the Boise State community. We are committed to nurturing the independent aspirations of all our community members regardless of race, class, gender identity or sexual orientation. We value freedom of expression that does not impugn a person’s identity or impinge upon their ability to succeed.
