A new public art installation is planned for Downtown Boise -- on the ground.

The intersection of 8th and Fulton - near the Foothills Learning Center - is set to see a mosaic tile project from local artist Jason Keeble. 

The project is set to be installed this fall, and will feature a multi-color zig-zag pattern in the area between the crosswalks.

"This area is in great need of a color splash," Keeble wrote in a design presentation. "This design offers a chance to brighten up the area in a fun and engaging pattern."

Keeble notes that the installation will look different depending your viewpoint.

The Boise Department of Arts & History is behind the project - with a cost-share from the City of Boise and Capital City Development Corporation. It is one of a number of projects along the 8th Street corridor in various stages of execution.

Corrects: 8th Street not 9th Street
