About:

Savannah Windows is an ongoing project with the goal of integrating local art with local business. Our current project revolves around Vogue magazine's Fashion Night Out on September 8, 2011. Our hometown of Savannah, GA was selected as a host for this global event. With the help of the Creative Coast, Savannah Windows has partnered with businesses and residents along York street and Broughton street to create window installations celebrating the rich cast of characters from Savannah's past and present.
