Latest in "The Series" from Trunks Art: "HOTEL BOISE!"

Boise, ID - July 3, 2017 - "Hotel Boise" - They came in droves to the Boise Basin in 1863 after gold was discovered here in August 2, 1862.  This created an immediate need for hotels, restaurants, stores, saloons and brothels.  The Idanha Hotel opened on January 1, 1901, the first day of the 20th century, and was designed by William S. Campbell, who picked the French-chateau style after visiting every modern hotel between Boise and New York.  It quickly became THE hotel in Boise and cost $125K to build and charged $2 per night!  Today, the iconic landmark serves as an apartment building that is believed to be haunted.

Trunks Art moved to Boise from Los Angeles in 2015 and has made this city his home and art inspiration.
