Boise State students to again receive free admission to the Boise Art Museum
Boise Art Museum announced that it will once again partnering with Boise State University to provide college students with opportunities to experience exceptional visual art exhibitions and educational programs, free of charge. All current full-time BSU students with valid identification cards receive free admission to BAM through August 23, 2013.
“We’ve had professors and students from the English, art, philosophy, French, athletics, literacy, international exchange, kinesiology and bilingual education departments, as well as the student success program and BSU Children’s Center, take advantage of this program, which has grown in attendance each year,” said Melanie Fales, BAM Executive Director. “This program opens the Museum’s doors for BSU students to experience original works of art at any time. Through this partnership, we are increasing educational opportunities for local college students, encouraging them to take advantage of an important cultural, educational and community resource.”
The program has been in place since 2005. Congress designated the second week in September as National Arts in Education Week to promote and showcase the immense role arts education has in producing engaged, successful, and college and career-ready students.
