The downtown Farnsworth Art Museum in Rockland, Maine seeks submissions for its new Winter Windows project. This site-specific project will showcase the work of Maine artists in the museum’s Main Street windows from Nov. 23 to Jan. 15. A $2,500 award will go to the finalist, inclusive of all expenses involved.

This initiative promises to add an exciting component to the downtown streetscape during the holiday months, coinciding with Rockland’s Celebration of Lights and the Farnsworth’s Share the Wonder Celebration.

Proposals will be reviewed by Farnsworth Chief Curator Michael K. Komanecky; Farnsworth Creative Director Anneli Skaar; and Tom Weis, designer, educator and cofounder of Steel House in Rockland. Weis holds a master’s degree in industrial design from the Rhode Island School of Design, where he also teaches. His work has appeared in the Cooper Hewitt National Design Museum, Time Magazine and The New York Times.

All individuals or teams of artists in Maine are eligible to apply for participation. Participants must be 18 years or older; all media will be considered. Deadline is June 1. For more information, or to submit a proposal (via, visit
