The Nampa Arts Collective is seeking artists to participate in a “Phantom Gallery” in Downtown Nampa on Nov. 15.
Phantom galleries are temporary art installations that convert empty storefronts into visual experiences.
Antonia Wynn is spearheading the effort. She would like to see “Phantom Gallery Nampa” become a regular event. Wynn reached out to the organizers of “Phantom Galleries L.A.” for advice on how to develop her program. Wynn and the art collective also organized the "Dia en Downtown," a community celebration for Dia de los Muertos that happened on Nov.1.
Wynn wants to change the perception of Nampa as a sleepy farm town by developing its growing arts and cultural communities, she says.
“Phantom Gallery Nampa “ is a collaboration between the city, artists and the community at large. It’s free to enter. It’s open to any artist, or artist group working in any media.
Application deadline is Nov. 7.
