Boise Art Museum Celebrates 75th Anniversary With Open To Interpretation Exhibit 

Through April 15

Since 1937, Boise Art Museum has worked diligently to supply the community with quality visual art experiences and exhibitions. And in the context of Boise's history, that's a long time.

To celebrate 75 years of showcasing painting, sculpture, pottery and other media in the Treasure Valley, the museum is highlighting 100 of the most important pieces from its 3,200-piece permanent collection.

The 100 pieces in Open to Interpretation are drawn from the best of this collection, including Roy Lichtenstein's "Sleeping Muse." The exhibition opens on Saturday, Dec. 17, with a reception on Jan. 20.

Open to Interpretation is designed to spur the viewer to search out similarities between corresponding objects or series' of objects.

"This exhibition will be particularly fun for people because it's designed to encourage them to interact with the artwork in a game of discovery," said Melanie Fales, executive director of Boise Art Museum. "It really will be a different way for us to display the works and for the community to engage with the works."

If you can't make the opening weekend, or even the first month of the exhibition, no worries—it will run through April 15, 2012.
