Freak Alley is a notable venue for public art in the form of murals and graffiti[1] located in and adjacent to a service alley in downtown Boise, Idaho. The largest outdoor gallery in the Northwest,[2][3] and a Boise institution since 2002,[4] it began with a painting of a single alley doorway and now extends from the alley itself to gravel parking lot.[5] Extant murals painted over and replaced by new murals (or incorporated into them) every two years.[6] It has featured prominently in a survey of ten mid-sized American cities with thriving artistic communities in which Boise ranked second.[7]
