Ernest Hemingway is a polarizing figure. It's hard to imagine a writer with a firmer grasp on simplicity. His accessibility, glamourous protagonists, descriptive abilities and exotic settings have given Papa H. an enduring legacy.
Then again, he also had a less-than-totally-PC attitude toward women. This is an attitude that is reflected in his books and biography, and is a glaring blemish on the man's otherwise heroic career.
It's on that topic—Hemingway and Women—that 12 Boise State University alumni, faculty and staff have built an exhibition, which opens today at the Boise State University Special Events Center.
The exhibit, a printmaking portfolio, examines the author's relationship with the women in his life and in his novels.
It's FREE to get into the SEC. The doors open bright and early at 7 a.m. and close at midnight. There's also an opening reception for the exhibition Thursday, Jan. 31, from 4:30-6:30 p.m.
