Freak Alley

Freak Alley is a walk downtown where artists have painted graffiti throughout.

A clever way for Boise to contain the artistic spew of its spray-can Michelangelos. As with all unofficial public murals, the lifespan of individual Freak Alley artworks can be fleeting. There's a mural event in early August every year since 2011.
