Launched in July 2020, Windows by Golden Triangle brings public art to windows and store fronts in DC’s central business district. Six artworks are currently on display and additional installations are planned for the coming months, injecting the neighborhood with artistry and creativity to uplift and inspire the Golden Triangle community.
Part of the Golden Triangle BID’s COVID-19 response and recovery efforts, Windows by Golden Triangle was developed to respond to vacant windows during the coronavirus pandemic and to beautify buildings. Following an open call to artists and a review of more than 150 submissions, nine local artists hailing from DC, Maryland, and Virginia were selected to participate in this project.
The following Windows by Golden Triangle installations currently on display:
- Adrienne Gaither’s How I Got Over installed at The Hay-Adams Hotel located at 800 16th Street NW
- Steve Alfaro’s Joy, Hope, Love, Community installed at 1900 M Street NW
- Hedieh Javanshir Ilchi’s Of time past and time future installed at The Mayflower Hotel located at 1127 Connecticut Avenue NW
- Shyama Kuver’s The Gardener and Sea installed at 1634 I Street NW
- Carlos Carmonamedina’s DC Is My City installed at 1875 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
- Nikki Painter’s Blue Spring, Late Summer Garden, Site Cycle (Split), Site (Chasm) installed at 1050 Connecticut Ave NW
Artworks from Katherine Becker, Kim Sandara, and James S. Terrell have been selected as well and will be installed in locations across the Golden Triangle neighborhood over the coming months.
