Roundabout Art – Artists and Community Members Needed

Work is progressing rapidly on Whitewater Blvd. Below is a picture of the roundabout which is located along the boulevard at Stewart St and the entrance to Esther Simplot Park. The city earmarked $30,000 to fund a public art project inside the roundabout. The request for proposals is now open to Idaho Artists. Additionally, community members are needed to help with the project in various ways.

Idaho Artists are invited to apply for an opportunity to design a public artwork for the new roundabout. The Veterans Park Neighborhood Association received a grant from the Mayor’s Neighborhood Reinvestment Grant Program for this project and will be involved in the art selection process.

VPNA Community Members: VPNA is searching for a local artist to be on the selection panel, a local business or non-profit representative who is involved in the 30th St. area, and for someone who has previous fundraising experience. If you know of anyone who might be interested in any of the listed capacities please send them our way. This is an excellent (and fun) volunteer opportunity, the panel will consist of representatives from the Boise City Arts and History department, Planning and Development, Parks and Recreation, and ACHD. Please contact VPNA for more information: vpnaboise@gmail.com
