Boise Art Museum explores ‘Earth & Sky’ with artist Laura Heit

Portland-based multidisciplinary artist Laura Heit’s experimental animation and performance installation “Earth & Sky” at the Boise Art Museum explores our fears of the natural world juxtaposed with the magical uncertainty of outer space. The exhibit is in two parts. You can see her film “The Deep Dark” (pictured) and animation installation “Two Ways Down” now through Sunday, Oct. 30. Then the artist will open the films “Rover’s Eye” and “Apollo Six,” and the animation “Hypothetical Stars” that will run through Sunday, Feb. 19. You’ll also see a new series of related cyanotype photographic blueprints throughout.
