In Our Own Backyard features examples of twenty wildflowers native to the State of Idaho. The mural, although stylistically contemporary, borrows its curvilinear shapes from Art Nouveau, a turn of the century art movement based on, and inspired by, ancient Egyptian Art. Across the street from the Bus Terminal is a historical Egyptian Theatre and concert venue inaugurated in 1927.
