Two ways to participate in ypsiGLOW: 1. Art piece/performance during event- Artists and performers receive mini grants to create a performance or art piece that will be activated during the event (October 27th)- Grant amount depends on your proposal (below)- This can be a giant glowing mobile sculpture, interactive installation, window projections, live painting, dance performance, etc.- Think big, unique, and GLOW
2. Window installation/ mural as early as two weeks before event- Artists receive a $300 grant to illuminate a downtown storefront- Starting mid-October, local artists activate downtown windows with murals and installations- Artists are encouraged to see these storefronts as canvases or stages for them to create upon- There will be an artist shoutout in each window that credits you/ your group. The sooner you activate your window, the longer your project will have exposure and create a sense of vibrancy in downtown- You are also encouraged to create a static window that becomes activated the night of the event. For example, creating an installation that comes to life with a performance artist the night of the event (if you are a performance group interested in this, please indicate below and we may be able to connect you with a visual artist).
