Call for Architectural Artifacts

Help Preservation Idaho celebrate the landscape and built environment that shaped Boise over the past 150 years by sharing your items from lost buildings. The exhibition, titled Remnants of Boise will display architectural relics from the last 150 years in Boise.

Remnants of Boise is brought to you by the Boise City Department of Arts & History on behalf of BOISE 150 and in collaboration with Preservation Idaho.

We are looking for items from buildings in Boise that are no longer standing, such as:

  • sandstone
  • gargoyles
  • carved beams
  • hardware like doorknobs, faucets, light fixtures
  • windows
  • landscape elements
  • signs

Remnants of Boise is a part of an ongoing series of exhibits, performances, and presentations in the Sesqui-Shop (BOISE 150 headquarters, 1008 Main St, Boise, ID) throughout 2013, to bring people together and initiate community dialogue. Each month the Sesqui-Shop features a new theme, and presents related exhibitions, lectures, workshops and activities.

BOISE 150 is a city program led by the Boise City Department of Arts & History to commemorate the city’s founding through special events, projects, and promotions throughout 2013.

    Open to anyone who is interested in sharing architectural ephemera to be part of a month-long community curated showcase.
