Think Outside the Box

For More Info

The City of Davis invites area artists to submit qualifications for an upcoming public art installation series. Think Outside the Box will be similar to the already painted utility and traffic control boxes in downtown Davis, however the use of printed vinyl will provide opportunities to showcase the artwork of more artists and designers; in a wider range of media including paint, photography, graphic design, illustration, and mixed media. A $500 honorarium will be awarded to each artist whose work is selected. Selected proposals will demonstrate high quality design and originality, with work that will enhance the surrounding areas of the boxes. Complete RFQ and guidelines can be downloaded here.

The City highly encourages submission of artwork from artists who may have not created public art in the past. Due to the flexible nature of the vinyl medium, the boxes can accommodate a wide range of creative work. For examples, please see the Capitol Box Art Project in Sacramento.

The application deadline is Monday, October 15th at 5:00 P.M.
