Original songs performed by Idaho Songwriters, inspired by Idaho Artists.

December 7th, 2023 at Jack's Urban Meeting Place, 5:30 PM to 8:30 PM.

Join us for 'Art as Song, Song as Art' on First Thursday, December 7th, at JUMP downtown Boise. This all-ages event is a captivating fusion of visual arts and live performances that you won't want to miss.

Immerse yourself in the synergy of artistic expression as BOSCO and the Idaho Songwriters Association collaborate to create original works of art inspired by music, and vice versa. Each artwork is equipped with a QR code on its tag, allowing you to connect with the music that served as its muse through your smartphone.

The performance begins at 6:30 PM and runs until 8:30 PM in the Pioneer Room (6th Floor). The art exhibit will be viewable on the 5th floor.

Get ready to experience the power of art and music intertwining at 'Art as Song, Song as Art' — where creativity knows no bounds!

Community Approach

Boise Open Studios is more than an annual art event. Our members are local professional artists who pride themselves in giving back to our community. As a non-profit 501C3 organization, BOSCO strives to educate the public about the creative process and what it takes to be a working artist.


As teachers

Many members generously give back to the community by teaching their creative process to both adults and the youth through workshops, private lessons, and educators for both Universities and K-12 schools.


As contributors

Numerous members contribute to the local art community by creating public art, and by working with their communities to create art-based events.


As mentors

Currently, BOSCO is working with the local universities to create an internship program, where graduating and grad students have the opportunity to be paired up with and mentored by a BOSCO artist.


Open Studios Tour

BOSCO's annual signature event has expanded over the years. The Open Studios Tour provides an opportunity for the public to meet local artists in their studios, learn about who the artist is and what inspires them, and to experience their creative process in the context in which it is created.
