Event Date: 2/9/2012 12:00:00 AM
The Windows endeavors to transform central Market Street storefronts into beautiful and memorable window displays that will invigorate downtown pedestrian traffic, promote public art, and showcase the vibrant creativity of the Bay Area design community. Each display will be created by a local leading architecture and design firm and inspired by a piece of artwork and story created by a child living at Raphael House – a temporary home for families in crisis.
The Art Institute of California— San Francisco invites the public to pick up a free map of the route and to start their tour of The Windows at the 10 UN Plaza campus building.
