Traffic Box Art at the Sesqui-shop

There’s a new show of our traffic box art at the Sesqui-shop downtown which opened this First Thursday. “Good Luck, Sweet Cookie” is fulfilling its own prophesy!

The Boise City Department of Arts & History will continue to sponsor shows and events in this wonderful space on Main Street between 10th and 11th for at least the coming year.

Karl LeClair, the newest addition to the Treasure Valley Artists’ Alliance Board, and the source for a fresh perspective for the TVAA Education and Workshops Committee is also the latest addition to the BDA&H staff at the Sesqui-shop.

Leslie Dixon was at the opening too. I got to know Leslie when we were both part of Karen Bubb’s pilot program for the Public Art Academy. She’s one talented gal, hopefully on the verge of a really BIG project which will be awesome for her and for Boise.

Pop into the Sesqui-shop and take the time to look at the original work that was created and then translated into vinyl wrap for the traffic boxes. I think you’ll be surprised by the variety of media and the size of the pieces — many of them are quite small. I know you’ll be impressed by the quality of the artwork.

All of the photos I have used in this post were taken by Alex Couey of the Idaho Statesman. See all the photos he took here, and for future events he photographs (Thanks Alex!) be sure to bookmark idahostatesman.com/spotted

Remember when you cross the street to look both ways — you don’t want to miss the artwork!
