Greetings From Germantown
The Storefront Activation Program through Germantown United CDC pairs local artists and makers with neighborhood businesses and property owners to upgrade storefront window displays and interior spaces visible from the street. The grant program aims to enliven the street for pedestrians, attract more customers to existing businesses, market available commercial properties, and promote Germantown to prospective businesses.
Myself and fellow artist Alison Dilworth transformed Bargain Thrift’s storefront window into a festive three-dimensional old fashioned postcard. Original “Greetings from Germantown” postcards were also designed with the help of Carpe Diem Construction Co's Angela Miles to promote the business, community engagement, the CDC, and Germantown at large.
