Windows on Chapel Hill Returns with Three New Installations

This fall we continued the popular Windows on Chapel Hill pop-up art installations throughout downtown. Featuring three striking, new displays by local artists, the current collection explores illuminated art and the play of light, glow and spirit at night on Franklin Street. This is the third year of Windows on Chapel Hill; having installed 11 different artists. 

This collaborative project between the Chapel Hill Downtown Partnership, smARTs Creative Programs & Events, and The Town of Chapel Hill's Public and Cultural Arts Office, funded through Chapel Hill’s Downtown Arts Program, brings eye-catching art displays to downtown storefronts, promotes artists in our community and further establish downtown Chapel Hill as a dynamic space for art. 

The public is invited to an opening reception on Friday, November 8 from 6-8pm at Vimala's Curryblossom Cafe during the 2nd Friday ArtWalk. Meet the artists, enjoy food & drinks, and hear about these great collaborative arts initiatives.
