The Windows on First temporary public art space invites artists to create original, site-specific installations presented within the context of the First Street Art Trail. Seen by passersby on First Street between Clark and Lewis avenues, the exhibit space fills three large windows and is on display 24/7. This project space is part of the city’s growing Public Art collection along the First Street Art Trail, an eight-block stretch along First Street, from Bridger Avenue to Boulder Plaza, which unveiled its public art component in 2014. Other features along the trail include the Aerial Gallery, Mary Hill’s Cycled Musings, and Jesse Smigel’s, Snowball in Vegas.
The city seeks artists and artists teams twice a year to provide public art installations for the Windows on First exhibit space. An honorarium is provided to each selected artist/artist team.
