Curating Curiosities is a community visual arts exhibit in the JUMP Lobby that gives the public a chance to view local artwork of different types including paintings, drawings and photography. Participating artists will be present to meet with the public during First Thursdays in the Lobby, and will also share their inspiration and background with the community during a Connecting Community presentation followed by a Q and A. Local artists of all levels and backgrounds are invited to submit works of art that will be displayed in the JUMP Lobby for approximately three weeks. If interested in sharing your artwork, send an inquiry to events@JUMPboise.org.
