Boise, Idaho’s Inn at 500 Capitol is connecting its guests to local artists. The hotel has transformed its lobby into an evolving gallery of artwork where artists can display and sell their work, commission-free. The exhibitions are created, launched and marketed by curator interns from Boise State University. The art has generated so much interest that the hotel is including “now on display” materials in the guest rooms to introduce the artists’ backgrounds and visions. 

Currently, Inn at 500 Capitol has more than 500 pieces of local art displayed throughout the property. For small group team-building or post-meeting activities, the hotel can arrange private tours and painting workshops at the studios of Boise artists Jany Rae Seda or Karen Eastman.

The atmosphere at relaxed Avondale neighborhood eatery Pisolino may remind you of a charming, laid-back European bistro—and for good reason.

Chef and co-owner James De Marte spent over a decade cooking his way through Italy to craft and hone the skills on full display at the cozy restaurant today. “The restaurant is truly his dream-turned-reality and a showcase of his love for Italian cuisine,” says co-owner Rachel De Marte.

 

There’s no better way to build team spirit than with a can of spray paint and a blank canvas. Native 312 Events gives groups a chance to foster community and creativity while learning about one of Chicago’s most widely seen forms of art: graffiti.

Javier Dominguez and Adam Dittman founded Native 312 Events nearly two years ago after working together on events for more than eight years. They now provide Urban Art Workshops to a variety of clientele, including collegiate groups and corporate teams.
