City of Boise Grant Recipients for Treefort 2018


In partnership with Treefort Music Fest, the City of Boise Department of Arts & History invited new media, interactive and audio-visual artists to submit innovative project proposals with the intention of engaging, inspiring and intriguing everyone at Treefort.

Selected applicants have been commissioned to follow through with their proposals during Treefort Music Fest 2018.

Keep an eye out for audio/visual performance projects, interactive art installations and new media projections by seven public artists and artist groups, live illustrations by student artists, an opportunity to share your Treefort experience, plus learn what innovation lies ahead for Boise’s water future. More details coming soon!
