  • Myself and a couple colleagues recently moved into a new building that is in need of wall art. Do you have any artists that would like to display their work in our office? I would love to have some local artists rather than chain store canvas just to fill space. We are a culturally diverse counseling center, so we would especially welcome artists who may express this in their work. Thank you!

  • Prominent and Exciting Public Art Opportunities in Boise
    The City of Boise releases a revised call for artwork on Vista Avenue and calls for new interactive projects during Treefort Music Fest.

    Boise, ID – The Boise City Department of Arts & History is inviting submissions from artists for two upcoming public art opportunities: an updated call-to-artists for Vista Avenue and a new public art call for the 2018 Treefort Music Fest.

    Vista Avenue Public Art – The department of arts and history invites public artists to apply for an opportunity to design and fabricate sculptural public artwork(s) for the median(s) on a significant and highly visible street, Vista Avenue. Up to three artists may be selected from this Request for Proposal as finalists who will be paid $1,000 each to provide a design concept proposal. Proposals will be put on public view for comment and the selection panel will choose the final work to commission. The selected artist(s) will be provided a combined project total up to $150,000 to formalize the design, fabricate, and transport the work to the site for installation.

    This call was initially released in April of 2017, however a selection panel recommended and City Council made a resolution to reject the proposals received as they did not meet the requirements for a landmark artwork. Their decision was also motivated by the more than one hundred comments gathered online and at two public meetings. Proposals for Vista Avenue Public Art are due on January 10, 2018, at 1 p.m. MST.

    Treefort Music Fest Public Art – In partnership with Treefort Music Fest, the department of arts and history is also inviting submissions from artists for three projects that will take place during the festival between March 21-25, 2018. The calls seek proposals from artists who are working in new media projection, interactive performance, and pop-up public art projects. The selected artist(s) shall be commissioned for individual projects up to $5,000. Proposals for Treefort Music Fest Public Art are due on January 3, 2018 at 3 p.m. MST.

    The mission of the Department of Arts & History is to enhance Boise by providing leadership, advocacy, education, services, and support for arts and history in order for people to create, engage and connect with the community. More information:
