Art in the Windows
Downtown Syracuse is growing! Our streets are filled with new shopping, dining, and professional services opportunities. Twenty businesses have opened in storefronts that were vacant at this time last year – and we want to keep those numbers growing throughout 2017!
The Downtown Committee of Syracuse, Inc. is excited to introduce a new program called Art in the Windows, designed to showcase available storefronts, while spotlighting the talents of local artists.
Art in the Windows advances three goals:
To entertain the Downtown Syracuse community by bringing streetscape-enhancing artwork into vacant storefront windows;
To expand the audience for our visual arts community by reaching downtown residents, shoppers, employees, and visitors; and
To highlight vacant retail storefronts as available business opportunities.
The Downtown Committee of Syracuse is pleased to release the Request for Proposals (RFP) for the Art in the Windows program, supported by grant funding from the Central New York Community Foundation. If you own or manage a building with available ground-floor space, your space is eligible to participate in Art in the Windows!
If you'd like to participate, please submit the requested materials to our Economic Development Program Manager Heather Schroeder via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please put “Art in the Windows” in the subject line. You may also call Heather with any questions at 315-470-1958.
We appreciate your support of Downtown Syracuse’s continued growth!
