This is the 11th 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, six projects will be picked for the new display. Individual artists or groups who are chosen to show their work in the windows will be paid a $250 stipend.

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

Windows Alive! art displays are located on the north side of Yakima Avenue between Hotel Maison and 3rd Street.

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.
