The Deal - 2008
The Deal is a city wide art card collective in which all arts entities including visual artists, performers, musicians, filmmakers, museums, galleries, writers, architects and supporters of the arts are represented by an individual card in a deck. All participants and the community are encouraged to trade and exchange cards in order to collect the entire deck. While in the act of doing this they are getting to know each other, discussing ideas and are physically involved in the primal human exchange of trade. It is our hope that these exchanges lead to further collaborations and partnering across arts genres. This deck of cards is meant to capture a snapshot of Boise’s art and culture at this specific moment in time and can offer historical significance to future generations of Boise arts “creators”.
