A peek inside Chapters from the History of the Book
By Tara Morgan
Chapters from the History of the Book: Selections from the Collection of David and Nancy Leroy, is sponsored by Boise State's Arts and Humanities Institute and will open to the public Friday, Aug. 24, at the Arts and Humanities Institute Gallery.
Kirsten Furlong, the director of Boise State's Visual Arts Center, has a piece in the current art department faculty exhibit which should have been the cover for the event's mailer. Called Collection, it is a glistening composite of imposing insects, spiders and arthropods, suspended in a thick resin and set in a deep frame like a box of macabre chocolates. Its creepiness only serves to intensify its dark, bizarre beauty, but beyond that, her piece epitomizes the specimen-like nature of many of the works on view.
"It is obvious to me that my apology will never be good enough for the Speaker of the House," Rep. Heather Scott wrote on her Facebook page. "Is this a personal issue against me? Does he want to keep the headlines going?"
Jacob Taylor, 35, was booked into the Ada County Jail on an outstanding IDOC warrant and was also charged with resisting and obstructing, and failure to appear. He is scheduled to be arraigned Monday, Jan. 23, in Ada County Court.
