With construction on Boise’s Pioneer Crossing development nearing completion, developers want to add a piece of public art.
The unnamed sculpture from local company KovichCo Interiors would sit at the corner of Myrtle St and 13th St., near the Pivot by Kristin Armstrong gym.
The crossing archway is a human-scale abstraction of this key gateway to the city at Myrtle and 13th, and visible from the farewell point of Front and 13th,” KovichCo wrote in a concept statement. “This gateway looking west is symbolic of standing at the western edge of our downtown at a crucial intersection in time as our city expands west and in all directions.”
The statement says the archway uses sunset and sunrise colors, with etchings designed to pay homage to trails and roads around downtown.
Ball Ventures Ahlquist will privately fund the artwork piece.
Pioneer Crossing, formerly known as Parcel B, includes a five-story office building, a Hilton Garden Inn, 826 space parking garage and Panera Bread drive-thru.
