Over the weekend I attended a conference that was all for creatives with online businesses in Boise, Idaho. There was a plethora of speakers, everything from YouTubers to bloggers to authors. It was a great chance for me to get inspired and learn some new things.
After the conference, I did a bit of sightseeing and went to what the locals call "Freak Alley," the northwest United State's largest outdoor gallery. It's an alley filled with an amazing variety of street art painted by artists local to Boise. I left feeling amazed and even more inspired. I'd never seen street art like this anywhere before.
I was lucky enough to have a couple of locals give me the tour. I learned that this alley has been a place for street art for several years and every year they organize a new group of artists to paint it again with new art.Entrance to Freak Alley and a record of the events
If you find yourself in Boise, Idaho, definitely check it out and enjoy the art while you can because for sure it will be painted over anew in the future.
