Join us in dedicating the new mural Go with the Flow by artist Kristen Ramirez commemorating the Boise River Greenbelt's 50th Anniversary. Located along the Greenbelt’s Fairview Bridge underpass, the mural will be the first of its kind on a section of the pathway managed by the City of Boise.

Artist Kristen Ramirez landed on the phrase “go with the flow” after meeting with community members and local artists. The new mural reflects the importance of nature, energy, flow, water, the river, movement and dynamism in Boise’s culture. The mural is a collaborative effort between Kristen and local artists Ellen Wilson, Eva Streicher, Jay Rasgorshek, Julia Green, Justin John and Nicolet Laursen.

The event will include the artwork dedication with words by Kristen, City staff and a walk-through.

Parking is available at the temporary parking for Quinn's Pond at 3198 W Main St. From the parking lot, join the Boise River Greenbelt, turn left onto the Boise River Greenbelt to cross over the Main Street bridge. After crossing, join the Boise River Greenbelt, turn left onto the Boise River Greenbelt and walk 400 feet to reach the Fairview Bridge underpass.
