On Saturday, July 18, from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m., Boise Art Museum is having a yard sale. At the Ninth and Front Street Warehouse across from BODO, the museum is
unloading selling shelving units, display cases, well-used pedestals, Christmas trees (yes, that's plural), artwork crates and furniture.
For those of you afraid BAM is selling off artwork to make money—or for those of you thinking you can get a fine piece of art for a steal—don't get your panties in a twist. None of BAM's permanent collection is included in the sale.
One unique item available for purchase is a LARGE piece of Boise State smurf turf that artist Matthew Barney used in an installation piece. It measures 33 feet by 23 feet and might be perfect for ... um ... I have no idea. Posterity? If you become the lucky owner of this piece of Idaho art history, drop me a line or, better yet, a photo when you've found a purpose for it.
Sales are cash and check only. If you have any questions or for more information, 208-345-8330 or visit boiseartmuseum.org.
