about the project
The Summit County Public Art Board developed the Dark Storefronts program in 2016. The goal is to bring people and creative energy to commercial buildings through public art -- making them interesting community gathering spaces.
The second Dark Storefronts installation, The View From My Door, asked Summit County community members to share their creative spirit by submitting a photograph that represented the world as seen from a place they call home. This exhibit celebrates our sense of place, our definition of home, and our connection to our community.
We received over 120 images from the public. These were designed into large format posters that will be hung in 13 commercial buildings across the County from 5/19-7/21.
