The sun has sucked the energy out of your mind and body and you lay on the couch motionless. You want to do something tonight, but you can't possibly endure the giant crowd of Alive After Five. Lucky for you, there are alternatives.
If you're looking for a creative way to spend your evening, witness the dedication of a piece of public art made by Boise artists Marianne Konvalinka and Lynn Fraley and learn how to make your very own visual journal with the help of local artist Lisa Cheney. Once you're energized from the art, you can run through the fountain on the Grove and tell the sun it can't control you anymore.
