Best Local Public Art 

Freak Alley

Readers' Picks

Public art has a tendency toward the mundane. Especially it seems in the Intermountain West, where it's hard to walk through a city without bumping into bronze animals or murals of hearty pioneers pioneering something. Not so in Boise (for the most part, anyway), and especially not in the alley that bisects the block bound by Eighth and Ninth streets and Idaho and Bannock streets. For almost the entirety of the 21st century, artists have covered the alley's walls with works that put the "public" in public art and all those pompous portraits and majestic metal works to shame.
