The Boise River, that watery, tree-lined boulevard, is for more than floating and sight-seeing on lazy afternoons. It's home to birds and fish that live there all year long. It can be tough to leave one's mark on the water, but artist Amy Nack has found a way to do the next best thing, and on Saturday, July 13, she will guide a group of participants in carving animal images into the soles of their flip-flops, dipping them in ink and stamping their way down a paper river in a representation of the lives lived beneath the surface of the water. Starting on Thursday, Aug. 1, the art they've created will hang at the Museum of Idaho for all to see. Nack will bring 150 pairs of flip-flops, but attendees are welcome to bring their own. This event is funded by the Boise Department of Arts & History.
