Art Projects Sought for Fall/Winter 2019 Windows Alive! Display

The Yakima Arts Commission is seeking applications for the Fall/Winter 2019 Downtown Yakima Windows Alive! Project. The deadline for artists to submit an application is 5:00 pm on Friday, August 30th.

Notification letters will be mailed to the artists selected for the Fall/Winter display in early September

An opening reception is planned October 4th to unveil the windows and open the exhibit to the public. The art work will be displayed through February 2020.

This is the seventh season for the popular event, which enables talented artists and groups of artists to display their works and at the same time help invigorate empty downtown storefront windows. Artists residing in Yakima, Yakima County and elsewhere in Central Washington are invited to submit entries.

Following the selection process by the Yakima Arts Commission, 6 projects will be chosen for the Fall/Winter 2019 display. Individual artists or groups who are chosen to show their work in the windows, which are primarily located along Yakima Avenue and on 3rd Street, will be paid a $250 stipend.

An application form and additional information concerning entry requirements are available at

Questions about the project can also be sent to

All types of art work are welcome, including paintings, drawings, fiber art, crafts, ceramics, photography, alternative materials and sculpture.

The current Windows Alive! installation will run through September.

Windows Alive! was created by the Yakima Arts Commission, which serves as an advisory board to the Yakima City Council. The project is part of an ongoing effort to bring public art to downtown Yakima.
