The Downtown Nampa art collective is a group of artists, business owners, and community members who are dedicated to creating and facilitating art and culture in our city.
Since 2012, we have brought artists and creatives together in mutual support and incentive. Our efforts have cultivated the Winter Film Series, Nampa Art Walk, Doodlepalooza, Chalk Bomb, Door to My Art, Phantom Gallery and Artists in Residence program. We cross cultures and cross mediums. We are both emerging and established. We have an array of backgrounds and accomplishments. We paint murals and throw pottery. We build sculpture and community. We paint watercolors and word collages. We create installation and capture images. We are an array of entities that form a band of not only colors, but of diversity.
