Vital Spaces, in partnership with 516 ARTS and The Paseo Project, is now accepting submissions for A Window on the Future, a series of month-long storefront art installations that will take place across Santa Fe, Albuquerque, and Taos. To support the creative community financially during this difficult period, the organizations will disperse $500 stipend payments as soon as participants are accepted in mid-May. The installation timeline will be determined by the state’s public health guidelines. Windows on the Future will follow all state and city government restrictions and health recommendations with plans to begin installation during the first phase of eased restrictions.
Windows on the Future will turn storefront and commercial windows, including the SITE Santa Fe window, into art installations and invite viewers to walk and drive by to see them from the sidewalk and street, working with temporarily closed spaces as well as active and vacant storefronts. The collaborative effort aims to bring vibrancy and vitality to Northern New Mexico’s commercial districts in these challenging times while also encouraging social distancing.
Windows on the Future will feature artists with all levels of experience — from those who have never exhibited work to renowned professionals.
We aim to feature artists representing diverse communities. We are seeking a balanced gender representation and prioritizing the inclusion of participants from diverse and varied racial/ethnic backgrounds, a wide age distribution, LGBTQ+ participants, and those financially impacted by Covid-19.
The call will be open until midnight on Sunday, May 17.
