About the Worcester Windows Program:

Worcester Windows is a community gallery program which uses storefronts throughout downtown Worcester as exhibit space to enhance the City’s downtown area. In addition, Worcester Windows provides display opportunities for local emerging and established artists. Originally intended simply as a means to provide exhibit opportunities, Worcester Windows has grown dramatically by successfully raising the awareness of Worcester as a Creative City. This initiative brings artwork to the public forefront, showcasing local talent, and establishing itself as a true community gallery through which many of the exhibiting artists sell their artwork.
