Art happening in Corvallis, Oregon where 15 artists put themselves and their art-making process on display in a downtown store window.
Each month the Footwise business in downtown Corvallis donates their 3rd St. display window to a an artist or guild to display artwork. Last autumn local artist Jeff Hess applied for the window with the intent of doing something a bit different... placing the creative process itself on exhibit.
At the beginning of the year a call to artists was sent out offering the opportunity to create art in the Footwise display window. Over the next two months interested artists submitted proposals describing what they would do with the space.
Eliciting the help of Hester Coucke (curator at The Arts Center, Corvallis) and Julia Bradshaw (Oregon State University School of Arts and Communication), a collection of proposals were selected that provide both a wide range in materials and artist experience.
Throughout the month of April, 2015 the selected artists created their proposals before the public eye... in the "Window on Art".
