Idaho Modern (and Preservation Idaho) introduced their forthcoming booklet Idaho Modern Field Guide: The History, Care, and Keeping of your Mid-century Home at Boise City Hall on August 24. The 20-page booklet, funded with a $5,000 grant from the Boise Department of Arts & History, will be offered free to Boiseans. The booklet will be available beginning the evening of Sept. 8. at an event hosted by Mid-Century Homes by Moniker Real Estate at Bodovino in downtown Boise.
The Boise Arts & History Department has hosted the Idaho Modern Lunch + Learn series this summer and this year is celebrating 20 years of funding Boise’s arts, history and culture. The department’s grant program has funded 357 individuals and organizations to date, a total of $925,000 since 1997.
