  • Leave your heart in San Francisco? Find a replacement hiding somewhere in downtown Boise this weekend (Feb. 8-9).


Peek under a newspaper box or check the branches of a tree Saturday, Feb. 8-Sunday, Feb. 9 in downtown Boise, and you might find a heartfelt piece of art.

Boise Art Giveaway, a “group of local artists abandoning art in Boise,” will hide at least 40 original heart-themed artworks in glass, oil, acrylic and mixed media, as well as jewelry and photography around downtown Boise in what the group is calling “heART abandonment.” If you find one, it’s yours for the taking. All BAG asks in return is a picture of the art posted to facebook.com/BagItBoise.

Participating artists include, Reham Aarti, Zella Bardsley, Tony Caprai, Kay Coughran, Amber Day, Molly DeVinaspre, Tricia Hoffman, Rick Just, Lauren Kistner, Marianne Konvalinka, the Surly Mermaid, Jane Rohling, Lisa Stover, Rachel Teannalach, Hollie Thomson and more.

Photos of some of the work up for grabs (like in the image above) is on BAG’s Facebook page.
