Dog Days

February—it’s the shortest month of the year, but there’s definitely no shortage of exciting things happening here in Boise.  When thinking of ideas for our Arts + Makers issue, we were inspired by the talented local creatives who beautify our community with their work. Whether it’s local theater performances, the Boise arts scene or handmade goods from local artisans, we were inspired by the creative culture our city is bursting with. 

Some of our favorite visual art experiences around the area include the Boise Art Museum, the LaBry Fine Art Gallery and the Visual Arts Collective. Local performance arts venues to visit are the Morrison Center, the Little Theater, Opera Idaho, Ballet Idaho and the Boise Contemporary Theater.  

With our own bustling creative scene—from artists and crafters to musicians and actors—we hope you find inspiration in these pages and come to appreciate our unique perspective here in Boise. Consider this issue your guide to all things creative and hit the town to unleash your own creativity! You never know—we may see you around!
