ESI buys land in Boise’s Central Addition

Engineered Structures Inc. has no immediate plans to develop the land, President Neil Nelson said

Boise Councilman Scot Ludwig had hoped to develop the lot himself, but it never worked out

ESI specializes in big buildings, such as Eighth & Main and City Center Plaza in Downtown Boise and the Nampa Public Library

Angie Smith photographs Boise's refugees

For a year, photographer Angie Smith has been making portraits of refugees in Boise with a grant from the Department of Arts and History. The project, called Stronger Shines the Light Inside, started as an effort to help ease the political tension around resettlement but as she got to know her subjects, she was struck by the power of their stories and expanded her project to include them both. A public exhibition will be installed in September 2016.
