Artists are welcome to send proposals on the Utility Box Mural Program’s theme “Double Take.” Artists are challenged to come up with “a concept that plays off perception and double meaning.”
The Great American Cleanup will take place on May, 17, 2014, starting at 8 a.m. Artists will be asked to set up starting at 8 p.m. Volunteers will be assigned to artists and utility boxes starting at 9:30 a.m. and will be asked to volunteer for 3 hours. Each artist will be assigned 3-4 volunteers. Artists are encouraged to create a template or outline to help volunteers paint the mural, or propose another concept for involving volunteers in the mural process. (Ci. Glendale.CA.US)
Artists may be new or established, from the general region or local (though Glendale applicants may be given preference). Individual artists or a group of artists may apply (groups may apply for a single utility box or multiple boxes). The artistic budget for each utility box is $750. Applications must be returned by April 18th via snail mail (download PDF here).
