Boise Centre underwent a major expansion and renovation, which was completed in 2017. It is the largest meeting and event facility in the state, offering 86,000 square feet of function space and the ability to host groups of up to 2,000 people.
As a celebration of the completion of the Boise Centre expansion, a work of art has been commissioned to be instated at the facility. Artist and Boise native, Amy Westover, created the piece, a glass sculpture titled You Are Here.
The sculpture was designed to inspire attendees and guests to look beyond the walls of the convention center to the city’s downtown and the landscape that surrounds the city.
This bright and multi-colored work of art can be viewed as an aerial map featuring many local points of interest. The sculpture spans 29 feet and includes 1,036 pieces of kiln-formed and water jet cut glass.
Boise Centre also upgraded its wireless internet infrastructure earlier in 2019 with the goal to improve connectivity and coverage. Bandwidth at the facility was increased to 500Mbps and will jump to 1GB by September 1, 2019.
