Freak Alley

I interrupt my series with Frisian fountains especially for Gert.

Gert would have liked to see some more pictures of the Freak Alley in Boise, USA after Lars recently posted some ( Breaking Boise )
After Lars commented that I would show more pictures of this open-air gallery, he was afraid that it might take another year before I got there.

So Gert, especially for you: 3 times Freak Alley, Boise, USA

Freak Alley is a notable venue for public art in the form of murals and graffiti located in and adjacent to a service alley in downtown Boise, Idaho. The largest outdoor gallery in the Northwest, and a Boise institution since 2002, it is a painting of a single alley doorway and now extends from the alley itself to a gravel parking lot. Extant murals painted over and replaced by new murals every two years; collectively it is the work of more than 200 artists. It has featured prominently in a survey of mid-sized American cities with thriving artistic communities in which Boise ranked second. The site, along with the back of the Union Block, received a $ 500,000 renovation in 2018 from the city. (Source: Wikipedia)
