Between 1983 and 1997, dozens of women went missing across the Great Basin region. Some of them were found, but their murders to this day remain unsolved. In a tribute to these women whose bodies were found along roadsides, Boise State art professor Lily Lee created the “Great Basin Murders,” a collection of art now on exhibit at the Northeastern Nevada Museum in Elko.

Lee joins Idaho Matters live along with Carrie Quinney, a photographer and collaborator on the project.<--break->
