During the week of May 11-18, 2011 eleven outstanding individuals from Chicago’s design, retail, and education community came together to offer their expertise. Their mission was to evaluate the top window displays on Michigan Avenue and Oak Street—based on twelve pre-determined categories chosen by Oak Street Design.
In its second year, the winners will be commemorated at a cocktail reception on The Terrace Rooftop, Bar and Restaurant at the Conrad Chicago on May 25, 2011 from 6:00-8:00pm. This season, the contest includes more participants and award categories, as well as an online voting program to engage the public and create buzz among industry leaders. - Braylen Barr
