Streetside Artscapes

Our streetside displays keep commercial districts activated 24/7 with temporary artworks from Pacific Northwest artists. We offer stipends to artists to take on a wide variety of spaces from storefront windows and display cases, to entire sides of buildings and public kiosks! We encourage visual artists of all mediums, and abilities to apply to be on our roster.
