Southampton Arts Center is thrilled to continue the Public Art Project, launched this past summer. In these colder months, SAC, with the support of Southampton Village, will work with landlords and property managers with vacant shops to animate their windows with dynamic art installations featuring East End artists. Inspired by the new legislation by the Village of Southampton requiring window displays in vacant stores, SAC’s first Storefront Art Project features artist Alice Hope: Priceless. The window installation which was completed on November 3 will remain on view for up to 6 months or when the shop is once again occupied, as per the requirements outlined by the Village. Kerry Sharkey Miller’s window will be the second in this ongoing project, on view January 10 for up to 6 months.
