Golden Triangle Business Improvement District (BID) Announces Windows by Golden Triangle

The Golden Triangle Business Improvement District (BID) announces Windows by Golden Triangle, a new initiative that brings public art to windows and store fronts in DC’s central business district. Five artworks are currently on display and additional installations are planned for the coming months, injecting the neighborhood with artistry and creativity.

Part of the Golden Triangle BID’s COVID-19 response and recovery efforts, Windows by Golden Triangle was developed to respond to vacant windows during the coronavirus pandemic and to beautify buildings. Following an open call to artists and a review of more than 150 submissions, nine local artists hailing from DC, Maryland, and Virginia were selected to participate in this project.
