  • On the Ranch

    Symposium shares value of Modernism
      For years, the humble ranch house has been the maligned member of the neighborhood, as ubiquitous as the suburbs themselves. But, finally, the ranch house is getting some respect—along with the rest of its mid-century architectural peers.

    Jon Swarthout finds a home for TrICA
      Stepping inside of the stone edifice that has stood in a residential neighborhood at the corner of 14th and Eastman since 1907 is a little like stepping into a broken time machine. Stained glass windows, exposed wooden timbers and a sky-high ceiling immediately engender a sense of the building's original purpose as a Methodist church. It's easy to imagine parishioners finding solace and community within those walls a century ago. Now, many of those same windows are covered on the outside with corrugated plastic, allowing only dim, filtered light through; some of the timbers are so rotted, one slight shove and they disintegrate into a musty brown dust; and signatures scrawled in Sharpie run up and down the support beams.

    VAC on the verge of opening ... again.
      When Anneliessa Balk-Stimpert and her husband Sam opened the Visual Arts Collective in a leased space in the burgeoning Linen District in the fall of 2005, their objective was to create a place where people could go enjoy, support and participate in visual and performance art. Their focus was far-reaching and included presenting musical acts covering a number of different genres, visual exhibits from 3-D art to graphic design and theater performances. They even hosted a group who practice the art of body suspension. VAC was shaping up to be the cornerstone of the Linen District—a multi-faceted, multi-purpose space from which other businesses and organizations coming into the district would take their cues.

It's now housed in the Boise Centre on the Grove, and Jill Aldape, the foundation's director of major gifts and events said they've finally had to put a cap on entries. "We've run out of room," she said. "The most we can hold is 100."

    Idaho's Black History Museum struggles to stay open
      This year, IBHM joined the party in style with dancing, music and food. At the party, Bob Trerise, former museum board member, met a young man from Houston attending the celebration with his parents. The family was in town visiting Boise State, where the young man was being considered as a running-back for the Broncos football team. After enjoying the Juneteenth festivities, the potential footballer and his parents were so moved they told Trerise IBHM had tipped the scale toward Boise State away from the other schools vying for the athlete's enrollment.

  • Basque Whalers, Ahoy!

    Basque Museum hosts unexpected exhibit
      What shipbuilders constructed the flagship Santa Maria in Christopher Columbus' famous fleet, traveled with explorers like Amerigo Vespucci and Ferdinand Magellan to chart their epic discoveries, and invented the first onboard oil refinery station? Believe it or not, it was the Basques. The mountaineering people of the Pyrenees were not just sheepherders. They were a shipbuilding seafarers who led the world in whaling, mapmaking and exploring.
