Eco-Conscious Event In Boise To Give Forgotten Artwork A New Home

Art Revival
Zero Waste Boise Institute/ReUse Market


Most of us have some piece of art we love but never got around to hanging. It sits in storage, inspiring guilt and is never fully appreciated. 

Donating it is not always preferable. What if it ends up in a home that also won’t appreciate the craftsmanship, or worse, the landfill?


The Zero Waste Boise Institute and the ReUse Market know that’s a problem. That’s why, this weekend, they’re hosting “Art Revival.” Part sustainability event, part silent auction, the organizations have spent months gathering one-of-a-kind (and mostly local) art pieces for attendees to bid on and re-home. 


ZWBI Board Member Patty Costello and ReUse Market’s Joanie Scofield join Idaho Matters to talk more about the event. 


Ticketing information can be found here.
