At the request of the Downtown Westfield Corporation (DWC), we have curated art exhibits in the display windows of several recently-vacated stores in the downtown area. To bring attention to these stores and their exhibits of original paintings, drawings, photography, and sculptures, we have also designed and printed a poster and map of exhibit locations that will be up around town for holiday shoppers’ information & enjoyment. We hope that shoppers will stroll a bit farther to see the art…
18 of our member artists have had work selected for these custom exhibits by our curatorial team of WAA board members. The displays utilize mannequins, easels, handmade pedestals, twigs and many, many, many wires to create engaging window displays of the original artwork. Each artist displayed has a printed label on the window with their name and details of their artwork, as well as a QR code that links to WAA for contact & purchase information.
The displays can be seen in several locations:
– on the corner of Central & Quimby
– along Broad, between Elm & Prospect
– on Elm, near the public parking lots
Please tell your friends and neighbors (the best PR is word-of-mouth), and please take some time to stroll through town and enjoy the art.
This is terrific and exciting exposure for our exhibiting members, and a great way to add life to our own downtown community. Please remember to mention the exhibits whenever you shop downtown during the holidays, so that business owners hear for themselves the positive impact and increased foot traffic that art displays bring to a vibrant community like Westfield.
