The Great Window Championship

Posted By on Fri, Dec 4, 2009 at 4:48 PM

On First Thursday, a gaggle of Boise Weekly judges joined community judge Nancy Spittle and Department of Arts and History judge Margaret Hepworth to size up downtown Boise's fourth annual Winter Window Gallery Stroll.

The yearly event pairs artists with downtown businesses to create holiday scenes, and though it's mostly for the public's enjoyment, there is some friendly competition involved as participating businesses and artists vie for the judges' approval.

Two teams divided and conquered, and two sets of winners emerged. Thanks to Downtown Boise Association for inviting BW to judge yet another year. And thanks to all the participating artists. We had a hard time picking winners this year, but it has to be done.
