The Cotswidders have been busy creating colorful evening shop windows to cheer the neighbors on their daily walks during the confinement.

Around 500 windows in the picturesque English town of Wotton-under-Edge have been transformed, and residents decorate their windows with bright, ornate and often moving designs.


200 places in the community have signed up for the Wotton Window Wanderland event. This year’s theme? Celebrating the community. The objective? Lifting the spirits of the people in the confinement.

Organized by Martin Clarke, it is currently believed to be the largest open-air art exhibition in the country.

Let’s take a look at some of the best works of art.

And hopefully, maybe this show will inspire other parts of the world to set up their own community-friendly, Covid-safe art galleries. What you think?

If you want to learn how to make similar window displays, you can search for Japanese paper light box art online (there are tutorials on Pinterest). Get ready to be inspired.

The whims and the birds in flight have delighted the local residents …


Through visual reminders that it’s the simple things that matter …


Like music and art, dancing and drawing …


And the healing power of nature …


Let’s remember all the little joys, every moment that we can …


As much as we can.
