Downtown Doors is a collaboration supported by MAC’s Blink temporary public art program with major funding from the Room Tax Commission. In addition, participating property owners sponsored their doors to help pay for a portion of the installation costs to help stretch the BLINK Program funds, and increase the amount of doors that were able to be included in this inaugural outdoor gallery
