Freak Alley Gallery, Boise

4.5
Freak Alley Gallery aka F.A.G is the Northwest's Largest Open-Air, Multi-artist Mural Gallery, located between 8th and 9th street and Bannock and Idaho in Downtown Boise.

Established in 2002 with the first drawing created by Colby Akers in the back alley door way of Moon's Cafe. From there the Alley has blossomed into a true work of art, with hundreds of participants that create works of art through out the year, from the Annual Mural Project to Sunday Fundays. Without fundraising and donations the Alley would not be what it is today.

With fundraising efforts through the " In the Can" program, Colby recycles cans with the proceeds going directly to fund the alley. Other fundraising efforts have been made through local businesses as well. Due to the amount of donations and fundraising efforts in the community, F.A.G is creating something so much bigger than just the Alley itself.

F.A.G is working to become recognized under the IRS rules and will become a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation. Through this corporation we will bring art back into the community and schools with special events, along with provide artists of all styles and mediums a free forum for their work. Hopefully by doing this we are able to help artists launch their careers.

We have an indoor gallery as well. Located at 210 N. 9th St.

  • This is an alleyway I highly recommend, especially to people who don't live around here. If you stop to look at some of the artwork, it's profound and some are inspiring, just to look at. The fluctuating art seems to just get better and better. I visit every time I can.
  • Very cool, ever changing and a brilliant inclusion to the city of Boise. The art was amazing, there's several installments that use broken mirrors to accent. Awesome.
