6th Annual Art a la Carte & Chili Fundraiser

Date: Thursday, Feb. 07, 2019

Time: 5:00pm - 8:00pm

The Department of Art welcomes the university and community to attend the 6th Annual Art a la Carte & Chili Feed Fundraiser. Initiated in the Spring of 2014, the event encourages community and university support for students. The success of the fundraiser has contributed in the creation of art scholarships and finances special department activities. This wonderful event is consistent of a silent art auction (artwork donated by students, alumni and faculty), a chili dinner (cooked by faculty and graduate students), and access to open studios.

The Silent Auction Preview Exhibition will be on display February 4-7, 2019.
We encourage students, alumni, and faculty of the department to donate artwork for the silent auction. Items do not need to be framed, but ready to hang or display. All media accepted.

Artwork donations accepted: January 28-31, 2019 on the 4th floor of the ISU Fine Arts Building in the compARTment Gallery.

If you would like to donate work before January 2019, please contact Dani Gribas (208-282-2361) to make arrangements.

C.A.M.P. - Communication, Art, Media, and Persuasion

Summer 2019 Dates: TBA

A first of its kind program in Southeast Idaho, CAMP (Communication, Art, Media, and Persuasion) is a two-day college experience for high school students. Participants will stay in the Rendezvous Complex, ISU's newest living facility which combines classroom, housing, dining, and social spaces, tour and experience the ISU campus, including an outdoor Concert on the Quad and attend workshops of your choice offered by ISU faculty.

These workshops are designed to display the breadth of offerings at ISU, as well as provide students with a chance to experience hands-on, college-level courses. Students have the opportunity to develop 3-D Models (and possibly even have yours printed to take home), work with mixed media and found objects to create a sculpture, produce a television program using Southeast Idaho's most advance television studio, create their own unique handmade books with upcycled materials and develop a website highlighting the experience.
