Arts & History at Boise 150 Sesqui-Shop

by

The City of Trees' 150th birthday may have been in 2013, but that didn't mean it had to shut down one of its most popular cultural programs, the Sesqui-Shop. So named in honor of the city's unpronounceable word of the year, "sesquicentennial," the space has hosted artist exhibitions, musical events, public activities and more. This First Thursday, Feb. 6, the Sesqui-Shop features the Art in Traffic exhibition, which runs until March 22 and features works by local artists that the City Department of Arts and History have been using to beautify traffic boxes around town. Oh, and there will be live music. It's all part of the Sesqui-Shop's grand reopening celebration, which includes workshops, a public art academy, walking tours, lectures and presentations by Seattle Curator and Collections Manager Deborah Paine and Public Art Manager for Portland's Regional Arts & Culture Council Peggy Kendellen.
