This holiday season, the village of Nyack will be transformed into a multi-media public art gallery for all to see.   Ten internationally known artists who live locally have come together with the help of Nyack Mayor, Jen Laird-White, and local landlords and Realtors to create Nyack's first Holiday Window Project.  Targeting the vacant storefronts on Main Street and Broadway, each artist will create a unique art installation to be displayed for all the holiday shoppers to see. 


This wonderful exhibit was conceived by award winning set designer and Nyack resident, Joanne Howard.  The project will run from December 11th to January 31st and will bring together a diverse list of local artists that will include :

Tony Oursler, an internationally-known multimedia artist whose work is in the collections of the Whitney Museum of American Art, MoMA, Tate Modern, and many other museums and galleries. Mr. Oursler’s installation will be part of a group of windows at the Athene Insurance building on North Broadway at the corner of Main Street.

Michael Zansky, whose work can be seen at the Brooklyn Museum of Art, Whitney Museum of American Art, and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.  Look for his work at the Athene Building.

Kris Burns and Joanne Howard round out the quartet at Athene. 

Suzanna Frosch will be taking over the windows of 2 N. Broadway.

Jane Cowles and Matthew James Smith are on view at Riverwaves Salon (4 N. Broadway)

Rodger Stevens’ snow flake sculpture will be at 86 Main Street.

Johanna Goodman’s collages will be at 116 Main Street.

And Jamie Gaviola will be displaying her work at Sanctuary at 60 S. Broadway.

An opening reception will be held on Friday, December 11th from 5:00pm to 6:30pm at 8 North Broadway.  A downloadable map of window locations is available at    The Nyack Window Project is sponsored by Alianza Services, Christopher Street Financial, The Time Nyack, Laura Weintraub/Weld Realty, Nancy Blaker Weber/Wright Brothers Realty, DCAK, and an anonymous donor.

Thank you to all the artists for donating their time and art.  Thank you to mayor Jen Laird-White for putting this all together.  And a special thank you to all the landlords who donated their storefronts.  

What a wonderful way to give back to the community and bring some extra light, life and art into these vacant spaces.  

Happy Holidays!
