Green Bay Public Arts Commission Seeks Artwork for Utility Boxes

Posted on 1-12-2023

The Green Bay Public Arts Commission (GBPAC) is seeking artwork submissions for utility box artwork. This is an opportunity to display work within the community for artists of all mediums, including but not limited to: painting, drawing, textiles, photography, ceramics, and more. Selected artwork will be developed into vinyl graphics wraps to be installed on select TDS utility boxes located throughout several parks and public spaces in Green Bay.

This project is intended to transform plain utility boxes into visually appealing, enjoyable additions to our public spaces. 

This call is open to experienced visual artists of all mediums who reside within Wisconsin. Previous experience with public art is not necessary. Artwork does not need to be newly created for this project and can be work created earlier by the artist, but all work submitted must be the original work of the artist. Selected artists will receive an artwork licensing fee of $300 per selected image for rights to use the selected artwork image on the utility box and in promotional materials.

The Call-for-Art and Submission Guidelines can be found HERE.

All application materials must be submitted by 5:00 PM on March 3, 2023. Interested artists may submit application materials and/or questions to: Laura Schley, City of Green Bay Public Arts Coordinator: 920-448-3142, or via email to [email protected].
