Call for Artists! Application Deadline: July 25, 2014

Envision how your art can transform a street, a community, a City!
You are invited to participate in the Redwood City Public Art Utility Box Mural Program. Find out what it means to share your creativity to beautify the streets and neighborhoods of Redwood City and transform a common utility box into a work of art for all to enjoy.

In partnership between the Redwood City Civic Cultural Commission, ARTSRWC, and the Redwood City Parks and Arts Foundation, we are transforming common utility boxes into distinctive and beautiful works of art. The Utility Box Mural Program celebrates artwork and encourages artists to share their creativity with everyone in Redwood City. Vibrant public art creates inviting spaces, and beautifies streets, neighborhoods and the entire cityscape.
