“Windows on Whitewater” exhibit displayed around town

Community members created thirty-four windows for the public art project.  All but one (that is too heavy for hanging and will perch in the Quiet Hut Sports window) are hanging up in Whitewater on the light poles. Students in Whitewater schools created eight of them.

WAA Co-President Linda Long said, “It was amazing to see what people thought of when ‘looking out my window’.”

A complete list of the Windows:
