Video shows progress on Boise State visual arts building

The new Center for the Visual Arts at Boise State University is set to open this August. A new video shows some of the progress on the exterior of the project.

The short clip shows aerial and close-up shots showing the building as it approaches completion. The building sits in a former parking lot on Capitol Blvd. just north of the Morrison Center. Inside, it will have classroom space, artist studios and gallery features.

In announcing the project in 2016, Boise State’s then-president Bob Kustra said it would feature a World Museum with technology developed at Boise State – allowing visitors to virtually tour museums like the Louvre, Guggenheim or National Portrait Gallery.
