Call to Artists

Windows of Little Tokyo

Los Angeles, CA


Japanese American Cultural & Community Center (JACCC) and Little Tokyo Business Association in collaboration with Sustainable Little Tokyo invites artists deeply rooted in Little Tokyo to submit two-dimensional plans, sketches/drawings, images, or renderings as proposals for one of two art commissions that explores the past, present, and future of our community:

Windows of Little Tokyo turns Little Tokyo into an outdoor art exhibition with 10-15 site-specific, two-dimensional artworks displayed on the windows of small businesses and institutions across the neighborhood. Windows of Little Tokyo will be displayed from April 14–October 13, 2018 (duration depends on each partnering site). 

  • 10-15 artists/art groups will be selected and given site options for windows at different partnering businesses and institutions. Final artwork must engage with the specific site, its history, and the thematic recommendations of the partnering site. 
  • Selected artists will receive a $500 commission fee. Printing and installation will be handled by JACCC, LTBA, and SLT.



Submission Deadline: January 15, 2018 to [email protected]
