Boise, Idaho: Pale Blue Dot

Shiny blue fractal people crawl vertically up the blank concrete wall of a seven-story building toward a big map pin stuck in a blue disk. It supposedly conveys "the shared human need for connection and safety." More fun to look at than most public art. Unveiled December 2022.

502 W. Front St., Boise, ID
Downtown, on the north side of US-20/W. Front St., just west of its intersection with 5th St.
