Freak Alley Gallery aka F.A.G is the Northwest's Largest Open-Air, Multi-artist Mural Gallery, located between 8th and 9th street and Bannock and Idaho in Downtown Boise.Plan my day in Boise using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.
Established in 2002 with the first drawing created by Colby Akers in the back alley door way of Moon's Cafe. From there the Alley has blossomed into a true work of art, with hundreds of participants that create works of art through out the year, from the Annual Mural Project to Sunday Fundays. Without fundraising and donations the Alley would not be what it is today.
With fundraising efforts through the " In the Can" program, Colby recycles cans with the proceeds going directly to fund the alley. Other fundraising efforts have been made through local businesses as well. Due to the amount of donations and fundraising efforts in the community, F.A.G is creating something so much bigger than just the Alley itself.
F.A.G is working to become recognized under the IRS rules and will become a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation. Through this corporation we will bring art back into the community and schools with special events, along with provide artists of all styles and mediums a free forum for their work. Hopefully by doing this we are able to help artists launch their careers.
We have an indoor gallery as well. Located at 210 N. 9th St.

This block in the middle of downtown is very cool! Very diverse, creative local art painted on the alley walls. This is not graffiti, its art. Don't miss it. more »
All of the greatest artists from days past would find something to enjoy here. There is talent everywhere you look and their skills are very evident on the walls of this alley. Everywhere you turn... more »
Freak Alley is a very cool place to check out. Idaho has some very talented artists that don't get to see how brilliant they really are. It's a great way for them to express their talent for the world to see. I am always amazed every ti.e I go down there.
Took my wife and kids here. The art is amazing! My favorites were the murals done with broken pieces of mirror. Good part of town. Safe and close to bars and restaurants. I didn’t see anything that wasn’t appropriate for kids. Great family destination in my opinion.
