Student Artists Create Cliché’s Winter Window Displays
MINNEAPOLIS (Dec. 2, 2009) – Uptown store, Cliché, chose four Minneapolis College of Art and Design (MCAD) students to design its window displays from December 13 to January 23. Each student will construct a display that will be shown for one week. Artists include experienced designers and illustrators in the fashion industry. Cliché has given them the opportunity to expand their personal and creative endeavors.
“We are eager to work with young artists who have the ability to turn a window display into an imaginative and beautiful masterpiece,” says Delayna Sundberg, Cliché owner.
Cliché will also be running a photo contest during this time, which entails people submitting a picture of the window displays at the store. Photos should be e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line, “Window Display Photo Contest.” The top three photos will be chosen on January 20 and winners will receive a Cliché gift card.
