A late new addition to the Boise State University campus will open this fall.
Boise State University President Dr. Marlene Tromp spent a few minutes talking about the new Keith and Catherine Stein Luminary, which will open this fall inside the Center for Building. ‘Visual Arts Capitol Blvd.
“You don’t want to lose that,” he said.
The Luminary will have 90-foot high-definition touch screens on the wall, designed to bring artwork from around the world to the Boise State campus. It combines projection technology with touch screens to allow visitors to scroll and zoom in on artwork.
“You might think, I can grab my iPad and take out all the great works of art in the world,” Tromp said. “But imagine being in a space where you can see these images with an unprecedented level of quality.”
Thousands of works of art will be made available that can be seen from museums around the world.
“We will have access to world art, so that young people in Idaho can see what’s in the Louvre. They can see what’s in the Met, “Tromp said.” I was able to see young people interact with this space and it was extraordinary to see them interact with art. “

The space will also offer virtual and augmented reality configurations and several different groups on campus are working to use the luminaire for innovative projects.
New Boise State football coach Andy Avalos saw the Luminary and immediately had ideas, according to Tromp.
“He came in and said,‘ can we get our football team in here (to hire)? Play a Fiesta Bowl on these screens? »
