Art League RI is seeking proposals for artwork to be installed in approximately 20 storefront display windows located in downtown Pawtucket. The exhibition, Windows on Pawtucket , is a collaboration between the Pawtucket Foundation and Art League RI. Large individual works, multiple works, existing work, or site-specific installations are welcome. Successful submissions will be exciting, colorful, and engaging, and easily visible to street traffic.
Works that reference the city’s rich textile history are especially welcome.

The call is open to artists living or working in Rhode Island. Preference will be given to Pawtucket and Central Falls artists. Artists working as a collaborative team are also welcome to apply.

Submitted images will be reviewed by a committee of jurors and selected artwork will be on display from October 1, 2020 to May 15, 2021

We are grateful to Senator William J. Conley’s sponsorship of a Legislative Grant made to the City of Pawtucket’s Art Commission which is providing support to the “Windows On Pawtucket” Project.
