HOW WE GOT STARTED
The very first line for Freak Alley Gallery was laid on December 15, 2002 by Colby Akers, our founder.
Our gallery space began as an artistic thought on the alley access door to Moon’s Kitchen, then located at 815 W Bannock St. While drawing on the door, Colby was approached by one of the employees and simply asked to sign his work when he was done for the day; Colby then asked if he could come back nd continue his work. Since then, Colby and over 200 talented local artists have worked tirelessly with the permission of the alley’s business owners, building owners, as well as public officials, to turn Freak Alley Gallery into what it is today:
“The largest outdoor gallery in the northwest”
WE ACCEPT DONATIONS OF ALL KINDS
We’re artists, we make use of things that might otherwise be overlooked. We gladly accept paint of all kinds as well as paint supplies ranging from empty cans, stir sticks, drop cloths, brushes and rollers. We also accept building supplies, from plaster to scaffolding. If you have anything that you think would help, it probably will.
