Exciting and cutting edge contemporary art by local and international artists
coming to a downtown storefront near YOU!
For the last 4 years, with the generous project support of downtown Windsor landlords,
business owners and the City of Windsor, Artcite placed a variety of art in a wide range of
storefront, in-store and available-for-rent retail spaces. Artists from Windsor and surrounding areas,
including the Detroit area, exhibited their artwork in non-traditional, storefront venues.
ARTCITE’S SUMMER ART FEST 2012 is located in sites throughout downtown Windsor!
Admission is free.
Programs include storefront exhibits, mini galleries, performances, children’s workshops (free!) and a (free!) walking tour.
The ARTCITE’S SUMMER ART FEST 2012 provides an excellent opportunity for the folks in Downtown Windsor and visitors
to see new works by numerous emerging and established artists in an accessible, fun (non-gallery) setting.
