3)  "Please join Boise Airport and Boise City Department of Arts & History Commissioners and Staff in Dedicating a new mural by Anne Peterson Klahr and new artwork by Belinda Isley at Boise Airport. These are the first public works to be acquired by Boise City by these two Idaho artists and are in honor of BOISE 150.  The dedication will take place Thursday, October 3rd at 9:30 am."

4)  Ten more traffic boxes will be unveiled this Thursday including another one by my friend, Kathleen Probst, whose box will be right under the Modern Hotel sign.  She will be there from 6-7 p.m. so you can stop by and say "hi".  (More info. on her blog. Click on link above.)

So much art to see and enjoy in downtown Boise this Thursday.  Hope you can make it to one of the events.

A Nod to M.R. is gorgeous! I'm hoping to get there to see it in person.
