For the last 66 years, thousands of people gathered at Julia Davis Park each September to enjoy and buy from local artists and food vendors.

This year, due to COVID-19, the Boise Art Museum’s Art in the Park is moving online.

The BAM Art in the Park Marketplace will be available Starting at 9am on Thursday, September 10th through 5pm on Friday, September 18th.

“The Art in the Park Marketplace will help artists whose livelihoods have been diminished by the cancellation of so many fairs and festivals this season, and will help sustain BAM during these uncertain times,” BAM Executive Director Melanie Fales said.

While 75% of proceeds will go directly to the artists, Fales said that Art in the Park is BAM’s most significant single source of revenue that helps fund exhibitions, collections, and educational programs each year.

“We hope very much that you will join us online to support and celebrate the fantastic participating artists, as well as the Boise Art Museum,” Fales said.

The online shop will be open 24 hours a day and will feature over 100 local, regional and national artists and crafts people.

The link to log in to the shop will be available here starting September 10th at 9am.
