It was fun to see all the new alley paintings since last Christmas! So much creativity!!! I was really happy to see a few of the originals still surviving. (I have lots more pics, but only ten are allowed.)

It is amazing that so many artists came together to create this wonderfully artistic alley. You could spend 20 minutes checking out each individual selection

Had lunch in downtown Boise and stopped by Freak Art Gallery to look at the murals. Amazingly creative art ... and a little scary what is inside some people’s heads! We enjoyed our self guided tour down the alleyway. Spent about 30 minutes.

Cool way to waste a little time in downtown Boise! Lots of interesting wall art painted here and something you could see in 10 minutes or take your time with.

We stumbled upon this walking around on a Friday night, looking for a place to eat. We loved it! Murals go up the walls, inside the doorways, around the corners ... of an alley way. I've seen different versions of the same concept in Malaysia...More
