Cool Hunting Video Presents: Electric Windows

We visit Beacon, a sleepy art-oriented hamlet in upstate New York, as two dozen international artists turn an old factory into a mammoth canvas

by Cool Hunting Video in Culture on 04 July 2008

Bringing together 24 street artists from all over the world, Electric Windows is a semi-permanent installation of large-scale work exhibited on the exterior windows of a 19th century blanket factory in Beacon, NY. We traveled to the small town earlier this year to meet some of the artists and watch them make "urban art" in a not-so-urban setting. We also interview one of the organizers, Daniel Weise, a vet of the NYC street artist scene who recently moved to Beacon and co-founded Beacon's Open Space gallery there.
