Boise, the second city in Idaho to pass a percent-for-art ordinance, has demonstrated great community leadership through its sponsorship of numerous public artworks. Capital City Development Corporation and private developers have also generously supported art that contributes to the beauty and interest of our civic spaces. In a very short time, Boise has accumulated over forty outdoor public art pieces as well as a collection of over 50 visual and literary works entitled the Boise Visual Chronicle, which offers area artists’ perspectives on contemporary Boise.
All of this is good news for the North End. And more so because the North End is home to many great artists from all genres – visual, creative, music, dance, theater and more.
From Freak Alley to spontaneous art, music and dance exhibitions, expect something different from our arts community.
