2024 CALL FOR UTILITY BOX ARTISTS!

BUDGET: $500 – $1,000 PER ARTWORK, ALL INCLUSIVE
The City of Tukwila is kicking off its 2024 Utility Box Art Program. We are seeking artists to create artwork for this year’s program. This program supports the vitality and attractiveness of the city, as well as local artists.
WHAT ARTISTS NEED TO KNOW:  
  • This opportunity is open to artists working in all mediums so long as the final artwork can be successfully translated to a digital file for print so it can be converted to vinyl wrap.
  • The city will be responsible for printing and installing the vinyl art on the utility boxes.
  • Artists will receive a budget of up to $1000.
  • Artists will be given artwork credit on the box.
  • Learn more about the program from last year’s selected artists.
  • Artists who would like assistance applying can join the Virtual Meeting Q&A for Prospective Artists on Tuesday, April 16, 2024, from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m.
  • In addition to individual questions, the workshop will cover questions regarding application content, and access to a computer or internet to apply.
  • To receive a Microsoft Teams invitation, email Michael May at TukwilaArts@tukwilawa.gov.
  • Artists not selected to create artwork in 2022 will also be considered for inclusion in the City of Tukwila Public Art Roster for future projects.

 

ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS:  
  • Applicants must be a professional artist and must live in King County.
  • Applicants must be 18 years or older and not a full-time student.
  • Community groups or student groups can apply if the principal applicant and point of contact is a professional artist committed to leading the group project through to completion.
