Auburn StreetScape is a program that seeks to enliven and activate otherwise empty storefront windows in Auburn's Historic Downtown by providing temporary space to artists, creative businesses, organizations and community groups. Applications for Static Installations and Active Enterprise are accepted on a rolling basis and placed as spaces become available. Auburn StreetScapes is a partnership between the City of Auburn and Auburn Downtown Association.
Artist participation is sought on an ongoing basis and applications are accepted through CaFE, an online call-to-artists service.
Currently on view through June 2014
