The Sun Valley Museum of Art is collaborating with Boise State University’s College of Innovation + Design to bring their MashUp lecture series to the Wood River Valley. Inspired by similar programs at other contemporary art museums, MashUps are designed to bring audiences together with lecturers to evoke creative connections.

For each MashUp evening, two presenters will each speak for 20 minutes on a topic of their passion, and a third 20-minute segment invites the audience to ask questions and find commonality between the two disparate topics. The host and timekeeper for the evening will be Boise State University’s College of Innovation + Design’s Associate Dean, Jen Schneider.

MASHUP #2 SPEAKERS at 6 p.m. on Thursday, March 21 at Sun Valley Museum of Art:

Tim Andreae is an artist, musician, and mental health professional who works in Boise. He’ll discuss an art installation that invited people to create death masks, display them at Ming Studios, and then destroy them as a reflection on impermanence. Jacky O’Connor, Boise State University professor emeritus of American Literature, will present her work of tracking down and capturing photographs of vintage signs and then finding and sharing their stories.
