"Boise's Old Penitentiary" is the latest work from Chuck Trunks!

Boise, ID - December 25, 2017 - "Boise Old Penitentiary" - Now serving as a "killer" historical destination in East Boise and as the backdrop for concerts at the Botanical Garden, the Old Idaho Penitentiary opened its doors in 1872 and housed 13,000 inmates until 1973 - 10 of which were put to death.  The maximum number of inmates (both men and women) held at any given moment was 600 - many of which helped quarry sandstone from nearby Table Rock to help build the prison as well as the foundation of the State Capitol Building.

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