Freak Alley is a notable venue for public art in the form of murals and graffiti located in and adjacent to a service alley in downtown Boise, Idaho. The largest outdoor gallery in the Northwest, and a Boise institution since 2002, it began with a painting of a single alley doorway and now extends from the alley itself to gravel parking lot. Extant murals painted over and replaced by new murals (or incorporated into them) every two years. It has featured prominently in a survey of ten mid-sized American cities with thriving artistic communities in which Boise ranked second.
In February of 2016, Travis Neal took a big road trip. After visiting Jeremy Glenn for a few days in Providence, Utah, and staying a week in Rexburg, Travis took a scenic route back home. He stopped in Boise to check out Freak Alley.
