You are formally invited to participate in the Downtown Hillsboro Partnership’s Spring Downtown Window Takeover!
This contest is designed to highlight upcoming AND experienced artists while activating the streets of Downtown Hillsboro for the community to enjoy. This spring, we are showcasing pollinators as the window painting theme! We will be selecting 12 artists to participate in this project.
We are accepting applications through March 27, 2021. Submit your application here.
- Inspire community through an engaging, family friendly art piece that is uniquely your style.
- Stick to the theme of native pollinators and their habitat.
- Include the pollinator assigned to you within your art piece in an intentional way
- If possible, align your mural to complement the business whose window you are painting.
- Include your social media handle and/or name somewhere visibly in your mural.
- No assumptions needed, ask for help from the coordinator.
- Have fun!
For your participation, we will be providing you with a $50 downtown E-gift card for you
to use at Colours Art on Main Street for supplies. We will also provide a drop cloth,
white paint, and a charcoal.
Voting will take place through the Downtown Hillsboro website throughout the month of April. We will hang QR codes in each window along with your display. Only one vote per valid email address will be accepted.
Stipend: Each selected participant will receive a $200 stipend for their time and work.
- First place: $300
- Second place: $200
- Third place: $100.
The goal of this project is to inspire people to come Downtown Hillsboro to see these
window paintings in-person, so we will only be publishing teaser photos of murals for
the duration of the contest. A snippet of your painting may be featured on our website
and social media pages during the contest, but we do not guarantee equal coverage of
windows on our channels. We encourage all participants to promote the contest through
their own network.
Again, we are accepting applications through March 27, 2021. We look forward to receiving your application!

- Your window’s contact information
- More detailed information about the payment process
- More information on when and where to pick up supplies
