YAKIMA, Wash.-- The Yakima Arts
Commission is working on a new plan to help beautify the downtown area.
It's called the Windows Alive project.
The program would fill windows in vacant
downtown buildings with art from around Yakima and Kittitas Counties.
The submissions can include paintings,
fiber, ceramics, and sculptures.
The idea came from a member of the arts
commission who saw the same type of program in Montana.
"Other, similar endeavors around the
United States have proven that art in a downtown core brings people to the
area," said Cheryl Hahn with the Yakima Arts Commission.
The program costs 25-hundred dollars,
with 15-hundred coming from private businesses, and one thousand coming from
The commission is taking applications for
art until July 15.
