The Summit County Public Art Advisory Board is launching the second installation of their Dark Storefronts pilot project to bring traffic and new energy to commercial spaces in Summit County. The first installation called Inside Out-Park City took place in Newpark last July-September.
In today’s digital age, our phones are often our windows to the world, and we use our devices to capture experiences, share memories, and build connection with one another. The View From My Door draws on that reality and asks the public to share imagery that reflects our unique and diverse community. From Monday, 3/6 through Friday, 3/17, the Summit County Public Art Board is calling on Summit County residents to submit photographs that reflect their interpretation of this theme. Submissions could include a literal photograph from a person’s doorway to an image of a place that defines home for them to a figurative representation of personal identity.
Submit photos here.
Photographs will be compiled into a series of posters that will be placed in commercial windows across the County, designed by Summit County curators Amy MacDonald, Kimball Art Center Artistic Director, and Nancy Stoaks, Kimball Art Center Exhibitions Director. Installation of the exhibit is planned for mid-April and will be up in participating property windows for a two month period. A community launch party will be held to celebrate all who contributed to the project.
