Utility Box Art - Call for Artists

The Downtown Fond du Lac Partnership is seeking artist proposals for the Utility Box Project. The goal of this project is to take ordinary objects of urban infrastructure and transform them into fun and unique additions to the streetscape. They will add color and vibrancy at very visible locations throughout downtown Fond du Lac. The project will also support local artists and continue to build momentum towards our growing arts scene. In this initial year, 12 images will be chosen to beautify utility boxes in the center of beautiful downtown Fond du Lac.

Local artists are encouraged to apply. A $200 stipend will be paid for each design chosen. Deadline for all submissions is February 15, 2018, 1:00 p.m. Full details for artists can be found in the PDF link.

This project is made possible through the generous support of the Fond du Lac Area Foundation.
