Art to transform utility boxes in downtown

by Sylvania AdVantage Staff

The Sylvania Community Arts Commission is seeking artist submissions to transform six electric and utility boxes throughout downtown Sylvania and the Red Bird Arts District into beautiful vinyl wrapped displays of colorful and inspiring work by local and regional artists.

The SCAC will accept applications for this call for art through June 23. Applications should include complete, partial or modified images of already-created works or works created specifically for this public art project. Modified work must be original and appropriate.

The committee will accept up to three artwork submissions per artist, with one image file for each work of art. Submissions should be two-dimensional. Artists should keep in mind the shape of the utility boxes and how their work will look on a three-dimensional surface. The art will wrap around the boxes of various sizes and shapes.

The design must be submitted as a .jpeg and
accompanied by a $5 entry fee for one design or
a $10 entry fee for up to three designs.

Online applications can be found at (under Public Art) or at

Submissions must be received by 11:59 EST on June 23 for consideration.
