CALL TO ARTISTS:
boxART! Utility box project — PHASE 4
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 website and other venues with your name and contact information.
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 to its hi-tech identity, agricultural industries and community gardening endeavors continue to thrive. On the application page you will find a list of topics, websites and sources for possible research.
Deadline for Proposals: September 15th, 2017
STIPEND: $650, which includes material costs.
