    his call is for submission of works that explore family history. We welcome visual art, literary works, and small collections of artifacts. Visual works and installations must be accompanied by a short (200 word or less) narrative that speaks to the show’s theme.

    This exhibit is to support our April writer in resident, Thirii Myo Kyaw Myint. She will be working on a family history project entitled “Zat Lun,” a Burmese word which roughly translates to narrative or chronicle. This project aims to explore questions of home, belonging, and identity through an engagement with place, language and memory. We are interested in surrounding her words with art and objects from our Idaho artist community that explore the same questions.

    In conjunction with the exhibition Consider the Source, Boise Art Museum invites designers and artists of all experience levels to participate and compete in our Material Design Contest. This year’s design contest celebrates the raw materials artists use to create works of art. The Material Design Contest encourages designers to showcase their talents to create a garment made from and inspired by wood, paint, metal, paper, glass, or clay.

    Garments must be inspired by one of the following six materials: wood, paint, metal, paper, glass or clay. Garments must emphasize or exaggerate the quality of the material utilizing both the actual material and faux finishes or trompe l’oeil effects. The competition is open to the first 30 entries. Contestants can wear their own designs or provide a model. Limited to one entry per designer/team. Teams are limited to three people, including the model. Contestants and models must be 18 or older.
