Downtown Eugene becomes the canvas for color and light this winter with painted and illuminated windowfronts. Come downtown by foot, car or bike to enjoy windowfronts transformed into art installations by local artists, artisans and creatives.


Windowfront Exhibitions showcases local artists and arts organizations, transforms vacant storefronts into works of art, highlights our downtown businesses and offers color and light to the community. We believe that all empty spaces have great potential to be transformed by artists and innovation.

Geordi Helmick

UNTITLED | 2020 Interactive Video

Dates displayed: December 14, 2020 - February 15, 2021

Presented by: ArtCity

Location: 1038 Willamette Street

About: In my work, I explore relationships between the body and technology through performance, interactive installations, and playful objects. Somatic practices drive my work, emphasizing interconnectivity between the mind and body. My performance art is framed by the vulnerability of being seen, the agency in choosing to be seen and move my body on camera, and being visible as a queer, genderfluid artist. 


This installation is intended to invite the viewer to feel present, seen, and celebrated in their body - amidst the unprecedented physical and social disconnection due to the pandemic. geordihelmick.com   instagram.com/geordi_art/


Joseph Peila & Cari Ingrassia

TOGETHER APART, APART TOGETHER | 2020 Video

Dates displayed: December 14, 2020 - February 15, 2021

Presented by: ArtCity

Location: 1044 Willamette Street

About: As COVID-19 continues to bring new challenges and constrictions, artists have had to change the way we create and share our creations. Luckily technology has given us opportunities to connect, yet we still feel disconnected.  For this live Zoom performance, we pondered the question: What used to make us happy, but now makes us uncomfortable? We communicated through painting, which revealed “uncomfortable” video imagery such as crowded concerts and intimate kissing. 


Joseph Peila is a multidisciplinary artist that specializes in creative concepts that stretch the imagination. Using both new and old technology, video, photography, design and fabrication, he creates work that sometimes is fleeting, but always pushes the boundary of normal concepts.  mehappynow.com


Cari Ingrassia designs unexpected and participatory art experiences that foster a community mindset. “I strive to create work that highlights our unique human quirkiness, while ultimately revealing our universal commonalities and connectedness.” cariingrassia.com

About: Stephanie Jackson is a mosaic artist and program manager for the Creative Connections Program at CAFA.  This exhibit, the "Mandala Project," includes stained glass mosaic mandalas created by the women in the Artful Connections Women's groups.


Jackson facilitates therapeutic art groups for the Creative Connections Program at CAFA, a counseling non-profit in Eugene. The "Artful Connections (50 and older) Women's Group" online therapeutic art groups recently created stained glass mosaic mandalas as a part of their therapeutic journey.  These groups were formed in response to COVID-19 to help promote connection in a time when women within this age group could be experiencing feelings of isolation and loss.  The vibrancy of the colors, shapes, and textures capture their hope and resiliency demonstrated during these unprecedented times. creativeconnectionscafa.com
