Re: “Boise State Pulls The Plug on Community and Regional Planning Program

Terrible decision. This is a big loss to the local community and all of Idaho. I don't get why BSU would be so short sighted.

Re: “Heliotrope Finds New (Temporary) Home—on Its Side in an Empty Lot on Fairview Avenue

Karen Sufficool, this project is not money left on the side of the road. This is a project I have been working on for four years of my life in which I am highly invested. Do you know what it takes to get art permanently installed in a public place? It is years of meetings, financial backers, talented artists, and personally invested citizens. And then to be told, a month after installing it that you have to move it? Do you understand what it takes to get permissions to get it reinstalled in other locations and the further investment necessary to re-hire the artist, move the work, and find a place that makes sense for that piece of site-specific work on a permanent basis? Your tax dollars are very hard at work making Boise a place of meaning, beauty, and wonder.

Re: “Heliotrope Finds New (Temporary) Home—on Its Side in an Empty Lot on Fairview Avenue

Yes, Boise City/CCDC has to move Heliotrope due to the Gardner development. I am negotiating to secure a new location for the work that will be permanent and that makes sense for the work, and for a short time the work is in a City-owned lot, safely on its side. What is the big deal? If its a slow news day and you'd like some interesting arts articles to write about, give me a call. I have many public art projects in process to share with you and your readers.

Re: “UPDATE: Spots Will Return to 10th Street

Dear Boise Weekly,
The cow box was cleaned in error. There is another box near the cow box on that block that was the intended box to be cleaned. The error is mine in that I was not more specific about which box ACHD was to clean. My apologies to all. The removal will be rectified.
