ABOUT DWDC

Detroit Window Design Classic​​

Detroit Window Design Classic (DWDC) is a design competition that pairs artists/designers with small business owners to develop elaborate window displays to promote their products. Designers will get a stipend for materials and lighting to help them get as creative as they want with the windows. This event will take place in Detroit's District 1 Business Community. 

The event will kick off at the Norwest Gallery of Art, where viewers can pick up a map of participating storefronts to view. Nothing is more exciting than a little competition, and this time you can be the judge.  Cast your votes for artists to win Best Storefront Window and $500.
