Submit Local Artifacts to Boise 150's Collect Boise


Got an old receipt from the original Alexanders Department Store? Why not contribute it to Collect Boise.

Do you have a slice of Boise's history that you want to see the light of day? The Boise City Department of Arts and History invites you to submit your artifact to Boise 150, the citys' sesquicentennial bash.

Family photos, antique signs, vintage postcards, relics from long-lost Boise buildings—any objects that tell a story of Boise's past—are invited for submission at the Boise 150 Sesqui-Shop, located at 1008 W. Main St.

The submissions will become a part of the monthlong exhibit called Collect Boise, which is one of many events and exhibits scheduled under the Boise 150 banner.

Participants need only fill out and send in a Collect Boise participation card, and then deliver the selected object to the Sesqui-Shop between Friday, Dec. 28, and Saturday, Dec. 29.

The exhibition will open Thursday, Jan. 3, and run through Saturday, Feb. 2. Participants are invited back Friday, Feb. 1, and Saturday, Feb. 2, to retrieve their items.
