Call to Artists: 2022 Portland Winter Light Festival, Deadline October 8

Celebrate light, art, and our beautiful city by participating in Portland Winter Light Festival activities this February 2022!

Earlier this year, we were thrilled to provide Portlanders with a safe, socially distanced way to come out and celebrate art and community together while safely managing COVID risks during the winter months. You all taught us so many lessons about how to co-create an incredible experience that helps everyone make special memories during the coldest time of the year.

Once again, the Portland Winter Light Festival will expand art installations into communities, neighborhoods, and storefronts all across our city. Part of our mission is to invigorate Portland in the winter, and what better way to do that than to invite artists, businesses, creators and designers to show off their best glow?

In 2022, installations can take the form of:

  • Light based art installations or sculpture in windows
  • Colorful and creative outdoor lighting
  • Art installations in your own yard or neighborhood location
  • Video projections
  • Creative multimedia installations viewable from the street
  • And more!
