My favorite public art is Rodin’s Éve in Jardin des Tuileries (in Paris), closely followed by the lights at Indian Creek Plaza in Caldwell during Christmas.

I would like to see a few more corporate headquarters in the Valley to diversify the local economy and add to current momentum.
I would never want to see Valley residents abandon their distaste for bureaucracy.

We are energized by an awareness that the special aspects of the Treasure Valley could be lost through indifference and by the attitude and example of our receptionist Kathryn Burkett.
I hope Together Treasure Valley will inspire other businesses to increase their support for the local community.
Our libraries are significant community assets, and the donations allowed us to support increased access.
I did have kind of an “aha moment.” I remember checking out “Bulfinch’s Mythology” from the Boise library when I was in the third or fourth grade. I took the book home, read and learned how Rhea tricked Cronus into swallowing a swaddled stone instead of baby Zeus, how Phoebus drove too close to the sun and how Hades used Cerberus to guard his gates. I remember I was not able to put the book down. From that day forward, I was hooked and spent hours at the library getting introduced to Edgar Rice Burroughs, Ray Bradbury, Kurt Vonnegut, John Irving and many others.
I was happily surprised by the level of demand. I am looking forward to seeing the benches out in communities outside of Boise.
For me, the most important thing was the fact Mayor Garret Nancolas and the City Council are committed to the project and have a track record of success. What Mayor Nancolas and the City Council have already done with the Indian Creek area is impressive. I am confident he and the city will leverage the Together Treasure Valley funds to make the Musical Arts project something special.
