Zions Bank’s Boise Art Show Draws a Crowd
Food, Flowers, Music and Art
More than 3,000 people flocked to Zions Bank’s sixth annual art show in May to enjoy breathtaking artwork, live entertainment, delicious appetizers and desserts, and attractive flowers at Zions Bank’s Idaho headquarters building in downtown Boise.
Nearly 80 local artists displayed handcrafted pieces including original oil paintings, watercolor, photography, ceramics and sculptures on the first, sixth, 10th and 17th floors of Eighth & Main. Visitors enjoyed refreshments and live music while mingling with trailblazers in Boise’s arts community.
Six caterers served appetizers and desserts to complement the drinks provided by four local wineries. Six musician groups also entertained guests with a variety of musical styles. The artwork juxtaposed bounteous floral displays from Boise At Its Best Flowers and a majestic ice carving of the Zions Bank logo, provided by Ice is Nice.
Many community leaders attended the Boise Art Show and commended Zions Bank on fostering the arts and supporting small businesses.
Anita Kay Hardy and Michael Faison, respectively chair and executive director for Idaho Commission on the Arts, said: “Artists — the beauty they create and the innovative ideas they seed — are at the core of thriving cities. Businesses that invest in and foster that creativity are essential leaders in that endeavor. The artists’ reception is a clear example of that leadership.”
