Art on the Ave fills empty storefronts

Art on the Ave was a program that displayed UW student art in vacant storefronts along University Way. This program started in response to concerns over the look of these storefronts and resulted in a win-win situation for students and building owners alike. Students got the benefit of having their work in the public eye while property owners got better looking storefronts. Property owners donated the use of their space for a set period of time or until it was leased. When the space was no longer available, the art was simply packed up and moved to the next available space. If you have questions or would like to make space available for displaying student art, please contact Aaron Hoard at (206) 221-7684.
