Benjamin Victor, Professor of the Practice
“Famed 17th-century sculptor Gian Lorenzo Bernini wisely said the best way to learn is by doing. In opening a public art gallery and interactive studio space on Boise State’s campus, I hope to foster just that in generations of aspiring artists. students and members of the community alike are encouraged to visit my gallery, which features a comprehensive collection of my past projects from around the world. More importantly, however, they are invited to step behind the proverbial curtain into my studio space, where they can see works in progress, ask questions about my process, and watch me create.
As one of Boise State’s Professors of the Practice, I am committed to educating the whole artist – from leading student art workshops on the basic foundations of sculpture, to conducting lectures on the business skills artists need in order to be successful. The least formal but most important aspect of my job is being accessible to students – ensuring that they know they are welcome to come in and learn from me, and work with me, in their free time. This is the foundation of learning by doing and it is the pinnacle of my mission at Boise State.”
