In the weeks leading up to Modern Art we are lucky to have successfully coerced five unique Modern Artists from our roster to create art installations that fill the Egyptian Theater Window located on the corner of Main and Capitol. Special thanks to artist Tomas Montano for curating, designing and organizing this and to the Egyptian for providing this unusual and inspiring mini gallery space. Come to the window for a sample of what’s brewing at the Modern on May 2nd!
On display now is the work of John Caldwell, mixed-media sculptor
April 5-11: Wil Kirkman, neon sculptor
April 12-18:Katherine Bajenova Grimmett, portrait artist/painter
April 19-25: Erika Sather-Smith, installation artist
April 26-May 4: Tyler James Bush, mixed-media/performance artist

3 of our favorite things combined with 3 of our favorite Food Trucks…
Modern Art is rapidly approaching and what does a hungry art lover do when she doesn’t want to tear herself her away from the awesomeness that is Modern Art?
Relax, this year we have your back. Or your belly.
The Boise Fry Company, Archie’s Place and B-29 Streatery’s Food Trucks will be
waiting to serve you delicious fare All Night Long! Stationed along Grove Street right in front of the Modern Hotel and open from 4-11p.m., now you won’t have to choose between viewing the next Artist’s creative Room and fainting from lack of Chili Cheese Fries.
