Window Arts Project - The Somerville Arts Council and ArtsUnion

Deadline: September 1, 2006
The Somerville Arts Council and ArtsUnion invite visual artists to submit work for its Windows Arts Project (WAP) 2006. Selected work will hang in the windows of Union Square businesses or be installed in outdoor locales. This is a juried exhibit; proposals will be reviewed by Somerville Arts Council staff and board members. Of special interest is work that is relatively large, bold and innovative art that will capture the attention of passersby while walking through Union Square and help convey the vibrant, innovative and artistic vibe of the area.

Preference may be given to Somerville artists and artists whose work is relative to Union Square. Please note that artists are required to install and take down their work and should be comfortable working with business owners.

The dates for the WAP exhibition are October 6 through November 3, 2006. Installation dates are September 30 through October 4, 2006.

To apply and receive information about the submission process, please refer to the contact information provided below.
