Connecting creatives and artisans to opportunities and resources

Windows ALIVE

The Loveland Creative District is accepting proposals for the ongoing Windows ALIVE program. 

We are seeking local creators to paint empty storefront windows throughout the Loveland Creative District.

Qualified artists and artist groups will be chosen on an ongoing basis to create original paintings and their work will be matched with an empty storefront location in the Loveland Creative District. The art will be on display for between one and three months depending on the availability of the windows. Paintings must be done with window-appropriate paints designed to withstand the weather and for easy removal.  The estimated stipend or budget per painting will be in the range of $300-$500.


Advancing Creatives Intensive with CBCA

Loveland Creative District is excited to be sponsoring Advancing Creatives Intensive (ACI) – a weekend-long workshop for emerging creatives in Northern Colorado.  ACI is focused on tangible business growth and planning for artistic careers, as well as building business skills like marketing and financial management. The cohort-based approach incorporates peer learning, networking, and accountability. The Intensive will enable artists of all kinds to see their work through an entrepreneurial lens and employ tools to organize, plan, and sustain their creative careers.

The ACI 2024: February 23-25, 2024. Northern Colorado is ideal for artists of all disciplines who are emerging in their creative careers and art business.
