Sesqui-Shop: Windows Into Boise 

Explore Boise's neighborhoods

Architecture is in at the Sesqui-Shop for First Thursday. Idaho architect Arthur Troutner's exhibit "Windows Into Boise" opened at the shop last month, and will run through the end of May, showing off hand-drawn plans, photographs and sculptures. The prominent architect is best known for his design of the Boise Little Theatre, as well as a handful of houses on Warm Springs Avenue, including the Klein House.

First Thursday-goers can also explore a "pop-up" exhibit by the Boise State Planning Graduates highlighting three neighborhoods in Boise and providing a window into their past, present and, possibly, the future. Former Boise Weekly staff writer and Boise State grad student Andrew Crisp has worked extensively on the project.

"We're hoping to spark a conversation about neighborhoods," Crisp said, "what they mean to the city, how they've been shaped and how residents perceive their communities."

The presentation includes images, quotes from residents and an interactive map. Lillie Mae Cane will perform live music throughout the evening.
