The Boise Art Museum will be holding its 67th Art in the Park fundraiser from Sept. 10-12 at Julia Davis Park, across the river from campus.

Art in the Park has been a staple among Boise’s community events for over 50 years.

The event will include exhibitions from over 250 artists with 104 of those artists being from Idaho, according to a press release. 

Attendees will be able to purchase artwork from the artists. It will also feature live music and various food vendors. There will even be a children’s art tent to get kids’ creative juices flowing!

Because Art in the Park is an outside event, masks and vaccinations will not be required for attendance, said Boise Art Museum’s executive director Melanie Fales. However, masks will be provided for attendees who want one.

This year, Art in the Park will occur on the same weekend as the Boise Pride Festival. Fales expects that this should be mutually beneficial, as people will be able to attend both.

The art museum is also currently looking for volunteers to help with the children’s art tent, booth sitting, recycling and event set-up and take-down. These volunteer opportunities will extend to the days before and after the fundraiser. 

For more information regarding the event and volunteering, please visit the Boise Art Museum’s Art in the Park webpage.
