Scenes From the Freak Alley Gallery Mural Project

by

Downtown is buzzing with creative energy every evening this week as dozens of artists slave away on a massive outdoor mural project in the alley that runs from Eighth to Ninth streets between Idaho and Bannock streets.

The murals will officially be unveiled with a large public celebration on Saturday, Aug. 13, but the painting process is also open for viewing and is pretty thrilling to see in action. The thumbnail sketches that were submitted may be seen here.

Boise Weekly stopped by last night and snapped a few photos.

Artists will be at work from 6 p.m. until midnight until the weekend. Stop by.
