Boise art will ‘go with the flow’ to honor Greenbelt’s 50th year

Saltzer Health

Seattle-area artist Kristen Ramirez will transform a Boise River Greenbelt’s underpass to mark the pathway’s 50th year.

Boise City’s Arts & History Department commissioned Ramirez

“I’m sure you’ll see influences from graphic design, modernism, my obsession with all things Mexico (including textiles, color, and architecture), and all the good thinking of the artists of Boise around the type of work they wish to see,” Ramirez said according to Arts & History.

Today we unveil the design for Go with the Flow, a mural celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the Boise River Greenbelt….

The painted mural will cover the walls and ceiling of the Greenbelt’s Fairview Ave. underpass. It will feature the phrase “GO WITH THE FLOW,” which arts & history officials said came from meetings with community members and local artists.

Ramirez will complete the mural in collaboration with several local artists. The new art feature should wrap up in time for an unveiling ceremony August 30th at noon.
