History of “Art & Roses” In 1990, the “Sundae in the Rose Garden” was an established event which featured people from the Rose Garden Society selling hand-dipped ice cream sundaes and showing off the roses blooming in Julia Davis Rose Garden on an early Sunday in June.
Lois Mc Whirter, working with the Boise Parks and Rec, arranged to allow the addition of fine art to the “Sundae in the Rose Garden” event.(1990) The artists donated a portion of all art sales to the Rose Garden. The event continued in this form, sponsored by the Rose Garden Society, for 5 years. When the Rose Garden Society was no longer able to sell hand dipped ice cream, the Parks Dept. asked Idaho Centennial Art Group to continue the event.
Each year the Idaho Centennial Art Group donates a portion of all sales to the “Rose Garden Fund” which goes to maintain this beautiful garden and park attraction..
