Boise, Idaho’s Inn at 500 Capitol is connecting its guests to local artists. The hotel has transformed its lobby into an evolving gallery of artwork where artists can display and sell their work, commission-free. The exhibitions are created, launched and marketed by curator interns from Boise State University. The art has generated so much interest that the hotel is including “now on display” materials in the guest rooms to introduce the artists’ backgrounds and visions.
Currently, Inn at 500 Capitol has more than 500 pieces of local art displayed throughout the property. For small group team-building or post-meeting activities, the hotel can arrange private tours and painting workshops at the studios of Boise artists Jany Rae Seda or Karen Eastman.
