Art adds unique color to our streets and beautifies our communities. That's why I announced my Utility Box Art Program in November 2017 to improve our neighborhoods while supporting local artists. This program sponsors local artists to turn blank utility boxes into stunning works of public art.
Interested artists can apply for the grant by submitting their design to firstname.lastname@example.org after reviewing the full program requirements document here. Designs must be community appropriate, and are encouraged in commercial zones. Any utility boxes in residential zones will need approval from the local neighborhood council first. More guidelines from the Department of Transportation can be found here.
PLEASE NOTE THAT APPLICATIONS ARE NOW OPEN. ARTISTS WILL BE ASKED TO FOLLOW PUBLIC HEALTH PROTOCOLS, INCLUDING WEARING A FACE COVERING AND MAINTAINING PHYSICAL DISTANCING WHILE WORK IS COMPLETED.
If you want to see the works for yourself, check out the interactive map below.
