"Artists" at Arnold's Frontier Hardware


Ditto, but through the window

The artists at Highlander Jr. Market and Liquor

Artists at Haynes and Oakley

Different window, different artists, same location

Two windows, two sets of artists

Posing with their work


Note the window at right was by different artists

As was this window on the left

Arnold's artists cleaning up

RC Modeler building had several windows available

One window's artists...

...posing by their work

A completed window, note the bright light in the middle to the left of the ghost isn't art, it's the camera flash

Volunteers dispense the paint

Artists at Washington Mutual apparently inspired by Tim Burton's Nightmare Before Christmas

Another Washington Mutual window

Artists with their work

Artists at Sierra Juice Co.

The posed shot

Artists at Sierra Fitness

And posing with their work
