......"Work from two prominent local artists hangs in my living room." Excuse me, but isn't that playing it safe? Does that somehow give you the credentials to expound on the shortcomings of an art museum?
"But I haven't been to BAM in more than a year." I have. There have been at least a dozen different shows in that time. Some of them were wonderful! Some of them weren't. Have you seen the Audubon works? They are beautiful. I went to see them with the print making class my wife is taking and I was glad I did. It was a real treat to see the originals. The point is: Your "playing it safe" is someone else's "Wow this is beautiful". And this is a biased article. The lack of objectivity oozes from every paragraph.
Leave it to Boise Weekly to print a totally biased smear job that is based entirely on a couple of disgruntled "artists" (never heard of either one of them) and a failed gallery owner. So, BAM receives a National Endowment for the Arts grant and changes things up a bit by having a theme for its Idaho Triennial, and that proves that ALL of the art shown at BAM is boring, unoriginal and not "cutting edge", whatever that is. Give me a break. This article has an agenda from the first word. Boise Weekly deserves the shitball reputation it has when it prints slop like this.
