Winter Artist Window Takeover

Get ready to cozy up with painted windows this winter!

Hillsboro Downtown Partnership and the Hillsboro Cultural Arts District are excited to announce the 2021 Winter Window Takeover! This holiday season, our window art will be inspired by the coziness of warm fires, fluffy scarves, and fresh baked cookies. We will be selecting 12 artists and 12 Downtown businesses to participate in this year’s project. The paintings will be on display from the first week of December through February. HDP is excited to organize a take home scavenger hunt and other activities throughout this winter to activate these windows and bring our neighbors Downtown.
