Those who happen to stroll down the alley behind the Flying M Coffeegarage in Downtown Nampa, will get a special artistic treat, a large-scale mural painted by Candis Redfield on the side of the building.

Redfield is an artist-in-residence in the new Nampa Art Collective's Village Square AiR program, but she also has close ties to Flying M. The recent Boise State grad works as a barista at the shop.

"The inspiration for this mural comes from our community and what the future holds for us. I wanted to capture the young generations striving for a better future that involves sustainability and our love for the environment," said Redfield.

Redfield works on her painting most Thursdays and Fridays in a space at Village Square (2nd and 13th Ave.) and shows her work during the 2nd Friday Art Walks in Nampa.

The Flying M Coffeegarage is at 1314 2nd St. S in Nampa.
