Mosaic Convening 2024

October 8-10, 2024
Boise, Idaho
A slightly elevated panoramic view of Boise's glowing city skyline at dusk. The sky is depicted in a top down gradient of deep purple to a muted orange along the flat distant horizon line. Overlaying the sky, in our upper right hand corner, is a geometric triangular mosaic pattern in shades of purple and muted orange. The city features about a dozen mid sized skyscrapers and buildings, including a distinctive domed capitol-like structure in the middle. The foreground is filled with a thick canopy of trees, occasionally lit up by pinpricks of street lights shining through the leaves
