    BAM's new, improved collection
      The Boise Art Museum already had a number of Northwest artists in its permanent collection when, in February 2004, it got an unexpected boost. Wells Fargo, which has a respected corporate trove of art, donated 20 works of predominantly Northwest art to the museum including significant works by many of the region's most renowned figures, most of them born in the early 20th century. The gift comprised of paintings, drawings, sculpture and prints from as early as 1943, representing a particularly fertile period of innovative, creative activity for Washington and Oregon which began in the 1940s. Sprinkled with other holdings from BAM's collection, the result is an intelligently presented survey entitled Artists of the Northwest offering a rare opportunity to experience legendary art at its best.

  • Urban at Boise Art Museum

    Art Review
      The exhibition feels excessively curated, luring the museum-goer away from appreciating the works individually and steering them toward heavily constructed notions of what the pieces have in common.
