The members of Logan County Arts are continuing the tradition of filling in the windows of the Lincoln Art Institute building with creative paintings.

The initial project can be seen on the first floor windows of the building facing the Lincoln Post Office parking lot. It was completed last year.

Now, another six artists have volunteered to add to this colorful outdoor art gallery. Their art was placed on the second and third floors of the building on Friday morning.

Margie Douglas, Jason Hoffman, Ashley Sanders, Tony Shuff, Jeff Williams and Laura Elliott have all finished their projects. “They have all created a unique blend of form and color that will brighten the downtown Lincoln landscape for years to come,” said artist and gallery owner Moses Pinkerton.

Each painting has been covered with several layers of a protective coating so that the weather will not damage or dull the paintings created by the talented artists.

“Art is not just for four walls inside an art gallery. It should be everywhere, inside and outside for people to enjoy. The outside window project is just another extension of an art gallery,” said Jason Hoffman, artist and president of Logan County Arts.

Jason Hoffman’s contribution to the project; he filled in the surface with colors until all the white was gone. He has titled his work ‘End Grain #2.’

Ashley Sanders chose an outdoor scene for her window painting.
