One day Buddy Van Buren was in the parking garage of the Idaho Building and thought that it could use a little brightening up. So he made some calls. The idea quickly snowballed and one mural turned into two floors of murals. And that's how more than 50 local artists clustered into the garage, turning a gray blight into a giant public art display. From the humble idea, a landmark was created and community spirit thrived. Someone paint this man a giant gold star.
