Winter Windows Project 2019-2020 | Maine Bicentennial




Farnsworth Winter Windows is a Farnsworth Art Museum project designed to showcase the work of living Maine artists in our Main Street windows through temporary installations of original artwork. The Museum seeks proposals from artists to create a site-specific installation for display in the windows of the Farnsworth Art Museum from December 2019 through Spring 2020.  This initiative will add an exciting component to the downtown streetscape during the holidays and then continuing through the beginning of 2020. The finalist will receive a $2,500 award, inclusive of all expenses involved in the project. Half of the award will be paid to the artist(s) at the start of the project, and the balance will be awarded upon installation.

The inaugural 2018 Winter Windows Project had a theme of “Winter in Maine”. The winning proposal was by Annie Bailey for her automated crankie “Abbie Burgess, Lighthouse Heroine”.  See her work here:


This year’s theme is MAINE 2020. The year 2020 marks the bicentennial of the great state of Maine, and submittors are encouraged to embrace this theme, either directly or indirectly, in their proposal.
