Downtown Yakima Windows Alive Project Offers New Art On First Friday
It's called Windows Alive and it showcases the work of Yakima artists in Downtown Yakima on Friday. Four years ago, the Yakima Arts Commission developed the idea to harness the creativity of Central Washington artists.
“It’s always exciting to see the new artwork,” says Yakima Arts Commission Chair Noel Moxley. “Windows Alive! is a wonderful program that continues to add to the vibrancy of Downtown Yakima.”
Following a submission and evaluation process, outstanding artists from the region were chosen to be part of the latest “Windows Alive!” exhibition, which will run from October 6th until February 14th, 2018.
The kickoff for the latest Windows Alive! exhibit happens at 5:30 pm on October 6th. Art will be displayed in storefront windows located along the north side of Yakima Avenue between 3rd Street and 4th Street.
Artists chosen to display their work will be available to talk about their pieces. The event will be held in conjunction with “First Friday” activities in Downtown Yakima, which showcases local wineries, restaurants and shops with specials and entertainment.
