Window Art Project, 2009

Evan 4

MadArt’s Window Art Project, showcased artwork in prime retail storefronts located in Seattle’s busy Madison Park business district. Eighteen merchants provided valuable windows to host art by sixteenlocal, emerging artists. The artwork highlighted a range of mediums, from painting, ceramics, and woodworking to mixed media installations. Each installation was site specific and easily viewed from the sidewalk, giving visitors an unexpected viewing experience. MadArt’s goal for the project was to offer an unusual artistic challenge for local artists to make new work, and to provide neighborhood visitors the opportunity to see contemporary artwork in everyday places.

The Window Art Project was produced by MadArt, with Founder, Alison Milliman and past Director, Bryan Ohno.
