All materials and consumables required for installations are the responsibility of the artist. This includes hanging hardware, temporary walls, tools, ladders, and any other materials that are required to safely and completely install the artwork.
Artists are responsible for producing and maintaining high-quality work for the duration of the installation, and will be asked to provide repair on request.
One application per artist or arts group
The selection panel is seeking high quality, flexible, and dynamic installations that utilize display windows to their fullest potential and engage with the general public both day and night.
