LECTURE: MashUp #3 — Bird-Proof Buildings & Habit Rehab

with Kirsten Furlong and Darrin J. Pufall Purdy

Thursday, April 18, 2024 - 6:00 PM

About MashUps

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 #3 Speakers:

Kirsten Furlong is an artist and the Director of the Blue Galleries in the Department of Art, Design and Visual Studies at Boise State. She will be talking about a collaboration between the Center for the Visual Arts and the Intermountain Bird Observatory focused on decreasing bird deaths caused by architectural design and how this relates to her own art about the natural world. Darrin J. Pufall Purdy is an Associate Professor of Theater Arts at Boise State and specializes in costume design. He'll be talking about his research on the historic garments worn by women in religious orders and how that led him to design historically-accurate habits for the Broadway revival of Doubt.
