Each month the Footwise business donates their 3rd St. display window to a an artist or guild to display artwork. In the autumn of 2014 local artist Jeff Hess applied for the window with the intent of doing something a bit different... placing the creative process itself on exhibit.
Eliciting the help of Hester Coucke (curator at The Arts Center) and Julia Bradshaw (OSU Liberal Arts dept.), a collection of proposals were selected for the first year (2015) that provided both a wide range in mediums and artists. That first year 15 artists in total were selected resulting in a hectic and immediate month... if you wanted to see someone you had to get to the window quick!
For the 2016 event fewer time slots are being defined which will allow each artist greater access to the window (and interested fans more time to catch their favorite artist at work).
