The City of Dublin invites qualified professional artists, or high school student artists working under the supervision of an art teacher or art professional, to submit designs for painted utility boxes, now through April 22, 2022.
With the positive public response to painted utility boxes, the Dublin City Council has approved funding for ten more utility boxes to be painted in Summer 2022. All of the approved utility boxes are City-owned traffic signal boxes. Winning artists will be paid a $1,000 stipend per utility box painted.
The theme for this year's utility box art is Dublin's 40th Anniversary of Incorporation. The City is seeking proposals that illustrate events, milestones, landmarks, and/or Dublin’s diversity since its incorporation. In addition to the theme, potential artists are encouraged to review Dublin's existing utility box art collection and develop proposals that are unique and unlike anything the City has already commissioned. To view the current utility box art collection, please visit: https://dublin.ca.gov/1928/Utility-Box-Art.
The application and proposals must be received by Heritage and Cultural Arts Supervisor Tyler Phillips by Friday, April 22, 2022, at 5:00 p.m.
