by and

Could those electric blue wings on the airport parking garage be a driving economic force? Robert H. McNulty thinks so. Local law firm Meuleman Mollerup, in partnership with Idaho Smart Growth, is sponsoring a free lecture by McNulty on "The Economics of Amenity and Public Art Strategies."

McNulty is president and CEO of Partners for Livable Communities, a Washington, D.C., nonprofit that unites 1,000 diverse organizations to promote the "diversity and consensus-building needed in the recovery of the American city." On Wednesday, May 12, at the Boise Centre, McNulty will lead a discussion on community cultural strategies as a major economic force.

Wednesday, May 12, 5-6 p.m., FREE, Boise Centre, 208-336-8900, lawidaho.com.
