The City of Fremont boxART! program requests submissions to transform our traffic signal control boxes with compelling and creative imagery. We are looking for innovative artists to enhance the utility boxes in a dramatic and new way.
This is a tremendous opportunity for forward thinking artists to let the community see your work. Hundreds of people will drive or walk by the boxes daily. In addition, photographs of the boxes will be displayed on the City of Fremont website and other venues with your name and contact information.
ELIGIBILITY: San Francisco Bay Area residents
THEME: The theme for Phase 4 is “Agriculture – Past/Present”. Fremont’s agricultural history is rich with ranching, farming, nurseries, milling and canning industries, and more. While the city has evolved into its hi-tech identity, agricultural industries and community gardening endeavors continue to thrive. Artists are encouraged to provide their own interpretations.
DEADLINE FOR PROPOSALS: Tuesday, June 27, 2017
STIPEND: $650, which includes material costs.
There are also sponsorship opportunities available for each boxART! By sponsoring a traffic signal control box, citizens, businesses, nonprofits, and places of worship are actively participating in bettering our community.
