  • A concept: your idea for the “Window Walker” plus name of artwork and short description
  • A short artist bio
  • Two samples of previous work emailed to same email above

Eligibility is open to all local artists. Artists’ concept proposals will be evaluated on how successfully they address the overall theme: Winter/Holiday season. Incomplete or late applications will not be considered.

Final selection of artists for the “Winter Window Walkers” art walk will be at the discretion of the BIA selection team. Artists must commit to completing their artwork on the windows at the designated painting venue during dates specified after their confirmed selection.

Artists will need to provide their own vibrant, washable (removable) tempura paints and supplies and be prepared to wash the windows prior to painting. Painting will be done on the interior side of the glass (please wear a mask). The targeted date to have all windows painted is first week of December.

Due to the current pandemic, social distancing will be in effect. If you have any questions, please contact Dawne Taylor-Gilders at dawne.gilders@waterloo.ca
