Best Local Art Gallery 

Freak Alley

When you consider the Northwest includes art hubs like Seattle and Portland, Ore., hosting the region's largest mural gallery in little ol' Boise is a hell of an achievement. That's what we have in Freak Alley Gallery, a labyrinthine collection of original artworks that color the walls between Bannock, Idaho, Eighth and Ninth streets. Created by more than 80 local artists, the scenery changes each year, which we guess also makes it one of the most eclectic mural galleries in the Northwest, too.

2nd Place: Boise Art Museum—When people think about Boise cultural institutions, the Boise Art Museum is invariably near the top of the list. Host to exhibitions from internationally renowned artists, local creators and everything in between, BAM is a local treasure whose mission is as straightforward as it is important: enrich life in the City of Trees.

3rd Place: Visual Arts Collective—In addition to serving as a top-notch space for concerts and events, the Visual Arts Collective in Garden City is also home base for some of the most provocative, intriguing and flat-out beautiful art shows in the city. With a full bar and urban-industrial feel, you'll be inspired as much by what's on the walls as the walls themselves.
