Storefronts Seattle is proud to announce its

2013-2014 Artist Roster

Sixty-seven incredibly cool projects from local and national artists will activate empty storefronts throughout Seattle’s retail cores this year.

Get your first sneak-peek here.

Storefronts Seattle. Saving America, one storefront at a time.

Storefronts Seattle is an urban renewal program devoted to re-invigorating the public’s experience of our retail cores. We place artists and their projects into vacant retail storefronts in various downtown neighborhoods. Storefronts is a project of Shunpike.

In the coming year, you’ll see an 18-foot-wide glowing long-eared owl.  You’ll see a video installation that watches the audience and reacts to them in real-time.  You’ll see 20 eight-foot-tall carousel horses placed throughout a storefront.  You’ll see a boutique that sells nothing but hand-cut “boot keepers” (trust us, this one is going to be the break-out fashion project of the year).  You’ll see a Tiki Town photo studio, a gaggle of new galleries, an almost infinite number of new installations, and more.

We have recently finished our annual call for artists’ proposals and panel review, and what follows is the roster of projects to emerge from that process. Some of these projects are static display Installations, created by an artist (or group of artists) that is experienced by the public through closed doors.

Some of the projects are Creative Enterprises, which are the open-door, regular-hours galleries, boutiques, museums, and other pop-up operations and installations that the public can go into and experience immersively.

These projects fill available vacant storefronts spaces in our program neighborhoods (which are always expanding, but currently include Pioneer Square, the International District, South Lake Union, Belltown, and Capitol Hill). The projects change on (roughly) three-month rotations, keeping the streetscape lively, energized, activated, bright, walkable, clean, and safe.

Storefronts – – is dedicated to supporting the vitality and artfulness of Seattle’s most trafficked areas. We present short-term pop-up arts activations of vacant real estate, partnering with neighborhoods, local property owners, and artists to inject a bit of brightness into some of out retail cores’ dark corners.

Shunpike – – is the nonprofit agency that fuels innovation in the arts. Its fiscal sponsorship and Arts Business Clinic programs provide operational and strategic resources to hundreds of arts groups and projects each year. Through Storefronts, Shunpike expands the incubation services it provides to creative entrepreneurs, and serves as the essential hub for the business, neighborhood, government and arts community stakeholders participating in the program.
