About Electric Window
In every city across the United States there are buildings that were once very integral to the life of it's resident and have become obsolete as society has evolved. Train Stations and Factory Buildings, once filled with people have been boarded up and left waiting for an angel investor to revitalize the building and then hopefully the surrounding area will follow. Our project is to use these buildings as canvases for temporary art installations while they wait for an investor. We think every city in the country has a building that could benefit from this sort of temporary transformation.

Why Electric Window Would Benefit from a Week at GOOD HQ
“We would use a week in the Good Office to brainstorm the most effective way to pitch this idea to landlords, find national sponsors to back the project and select communities and locations that would benefit most from an art focused interim transformation.”
