Deadline: Monday, October 19, 2020
The West Palm Beach Downtown Development Authority (DDA), with the support from the West Palm Beach Arts & Entertainment District (A&E) are requesting submissions from artists for the DowntownWPB Utility Art Box Project throughout Downtown West Palm Beach. We are searching for an artist, or a team of artists, who can create artwork to be digitally printed and used in vinyl wrapping of utility boxes. Selected artist(s) will be awarded stipends for their artwork.
The artwork should be inspired by nature, as the overall theme is “Nature in the City”. We encourage artists to imagine the work as a type of “tattoo” covering the utility box. The two-dimensional artwork will transform as it covers the three-dimensional aspect of the utility box. Artists need to consider the placement of the components in their images so that all sides of the utility box are complete. These artworks should reflect a positive creative message that visually complements the surrounding area and ignites the community’s imagination. To be completed in Spring 2021.
