Utility box art wrap call

We're inviting artists to create temporary digital printed artwork to be installed along commercial streets. The project enhances the public realm by featuring local artists’ work.

Artists will be commissioned by an external three-to-five member panel of local artists and art professionals. Up to 20 boxes will be wrapped this year.

What's happening

Thank you to everyone who applied
