Hundreds of Idahoans become public artists along the Boise Greenbelt with flip flops

The finished project will be a massive mural displayed at the Idaho History Museum.

BOISE, Idaho — Hundreds of people carved fish, water, and bird stamps and stuck them to the bottom of their flip flops and walked in ink across parchment paper on Saturday.

Once finished, this unusual art project will become a massive mural that will be displayed the first Thursday in August at the Idaho History Museum.

Organizers say this project celebrates 50 years of the Boise Greenbelt through print-art.

"Part of printmaking is its a pretty democratic medium meaning that it always been used to spread the word, and so we are spreading the word about the Boise River, it's kind of the heart of our city," Amy Nack, with Wingtip Press, said.

The mural will be on display the first Thursday of August from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Idaho History Museum for free.
