A new open-air art trail has launched featuring 60 artworks spread across 50 locations. The 50 Windows of Creativity trail is a self-guided project that has turned the British city into a huge open-air gallery.
The trail showcases the work of artists and makers in windows, venues, businesses, and spaces across the city center. Multiple art forms are exhibited, including fine art, photography, ceramics, crafts, mosaics, and murals, and they are curated by well-known and emerging artists, designers, makers, and collectives. All have a connection to Greater Manchester, and every piece on display is available to buy directly from the artist or maker.
The project culminates with an auction on December 10, which will see a selection of pieces auctioned with proceeds going to their artists and makers, and 25% to the We Love MCR Charity, which supports disadvantaged communities and individuals. Wild in Art is also inviting the public to get creative at home by downloading the window template on its website from November 9 and submitting their own artwork to be a part of a virtual global gallery.
