Creating Windows by Lee Hiers

1996. We, the Cultural Society, move to a space on Main Street in Coatesville. At one point the building was a jewelry store with showcase windows in front. As a group, we thought wouldn’t it be nice to use these windows as a venue for small installations of art. Anne and I were elected for the project. We would each have a window and would change the exhibits every week.

I have been travelling back to memories of what inspired me: the freedom to express, and the opportunity to possibly touch someone’s life as they walked down the street, glanced over at our windows, and thought, “Wow.” It didn’t matter to me if they liked or disliked the display. It gave their eye something unusual to focus on and maybe sparked their own creativity, changed their thoughts for a moment. And maybe their curiosity would walk them through our door. I was happy doing this work. I enjoyed the solitude, reaching inside my soul to be.

 

Years race by… A new building, big gold letters: “Coatesville Cultural Society” ... Our work, our art continues...
