Make a resolution to shop local this year, and get started at the Linen Building Sunday Market from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 16, at the Linen Building, 1402 W. Grove St. in Downtown Boise's Linen District. Admission to the Linen Building Sunday Market is always free. Plenty of free, off-street parking is available at the Linen Building.


Every third Sunday of the month, the Treasure Valley's only year-round indoor market showcases two dozen Creators offering locally-made arts and crafts, jewelry, clothing and more. The market is a unique, pedestrian-friendly destination in the heart of Downtown Boise's happening Linen District.
A portion of January Sunday Market proceeds will benefit Interfaith Sanctuary Housing Services, which provides overnight shelter and supportive services for men, women and families with children.
 
Visit the Linen Building Facebook page (facebook.com/linenbuilding) for full descriptions of January's Creators.


A portion of Sunday Market proceeds are donated back to the community each month. Past recipients include the Idaho Foodbank, Boise Rescue Mission, Women's and Children's Alliance of Boise, Boise Bicycle Project, Idaho Youth Ranch, Interfaith Housing Services, Treasure Valley Institute for Children's Arts (TrICA), Boise Community Radio, Treasure Valley Family YMCA, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southwest Idaho, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Ada County, Ride for Joy, Camp River Run, Merina Healing Arts Foundation and Project Patch.

Boise Art Museum, Art & Environment Exhibit





   This exhibition focuses on how a group of Northwest artists are currently responding to the heightened awareness of global issues and specific environmental concerns in the Northwest region. Through their artwork these artists are reacting to eight specific environmental issues which have been identified by top environmentalists as primary concerns:
growth management, waste management-land and sea, mass production/consumption, transportation, preservation of wilderness and wetlands, biodiversity, climate change and energy.


Nothing is more beautiful than the world we live in...

Earth from the Air by Jann Arthus-Bertrand

Environmental Art has the power to change the way we view our world.
Some artists showcase the innate beauty in nature.
