Junior League Of Boise Sponsors Children’s Art Tent And Honors Historic Partnership

Art in the Park has long been a staple of Boise’s cultural life. Established in 1954, Art in the Park is an outdoor festival held annually by the Boise Art Museum (BAM) to showcase talented local artists. As with so many community events, Art in the Park would not be possible without volunteers.

The Junior League of Boise has, for decades, served as the go-to volunteers in Treasure Valley and they are proud to serve in that capacity again for BAM. Melanie Fales, Executive Director of BAM, said: “It is truly wonderful that we have such a long history with the Junior League of Boise. One of the projects we have worked on together in the past was the tent of children’s art. So it’s a great way to pay tribute to our long-standing partnership.”

Another pillar of the Boise community, the Junior League of Boise (JLB), is approaching its 100th anniversary. In honor of this milestone, in 2018, JLB adopted Project 100, a 10-year commitment to review ten nonprofit programs previously supported or developed by JLB. Boise Art Museum was an exciting partnership for JLB to renew. This year, the JLB awarded $10,000 to sponsor the Children’s Art Tent at Art in the Park.

JLB President HannaLore Hein said, “By partnering with the Boise Art Museum for the 2022-23 League year, we can build on our organization’s legacy of service work in the art education, which dates back to 1940, when we started working with the Boise Gallery of Arts as guides. Throughout the 20th century, our organization proudly supported several Boise Art Museum programs, including a traveling art school program, children’s workshops, exhibits, and more. JLB welcomed BAM as a 5 Year 100 Project Partner and looks forward to working alongside BAM this year to honor our longstanding commitment to the arts and arts education. The JLB also sent a delegation of 35 League members who volunteered for a total of 115 hours at the children’s art tent during the three-day event. The Children’s Art Tent was a resounding success, serving a total of 1079 children and 2053 adults.

The Junior League of Boise, a non-profit organization, is one of the oldest, most successful and longest-lasting women’s organizations in Idaho, providing Treasure Valley with its volunteer services and projects for over 95 years. . His past projects include the Boise School Volunteer Program, 2-1-1 Idaho Careline, and the Discovery Center of Idaho. The mission of the Junior League of Boise is to promote volunteerism, develop the potential of women, and improve the community through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers.

Boise Art Museum embraces its long and rich history as an opportunity to enhance and ensure enriching experiences for all visitors, through exceptional exhibits, collections, interpretive strategies, educational programs and a welcoming environment, as well as a commitment to be an essential part of the educational, economic and cultural life of the community.
