Public art fosters “creative class” community downtown

Public art fosters “creative class” community downtown

From the Idaho Business Review

From traffic light control boxes wrapped in colorful artwork to multiple murals and sculptures, downtown Boise is home to hundreds of works of public art.

These publicly accessible works are both privately and publicly funded, but are available for viewing by anyone without paying admission. Of course, none of these works would be possible without the artists who create them, and in 2018, the city hired 39 individual artists for public art projects citywide.
