A wide range of media represented
Co-curators K.C. Madsen and Dene Grigar selected artists for diverse use of media and differing artistic sensibilities. Artists had the option to provide existing works or create site-specific installations. The result was a diverse array of artworks and experiences for sidewalk viewers.
With the generous support of downtown Vancouver building owners and property managers, Windows into Art took place in seven different buildings with a total of 18 window exhibition sites.
The idea of showing art in vacant windows wasn't new, but what was exciting about this exhibition was the kind of art represented and the number of storefronts in the downtown urban core who were willing to participate in making this exhibition a unique and amazing event.
