38 Minus: The Idaho Fish Project
Featuring the words of Lonnie Hutson | February 19 - April 6
“38 Minus: The Idaho Fish Project” features 38 different Idaho native species of fish cast in handmade paper relief sculptures. To create the exhibit, artist Lonnie Hutson collaborated with UI fish and wildlife professor Michael Quist to help identify and collect the native Idaho fish species.
“Just watching how the whole ecosystems on the rivers over 30 years have changed, I got fascinated with how fish play into that change”
Hutson earned a bachelor’s degree in art and architecture from the University of Washington and a Master’s of Fine Arts degree from the University of Idaho. While studying at the University of Washington, an art professor told Hutson to go live life for a while to inspire his artwork. After graduating from the University of Washington, he worked as a river guide in the western United States.
