San Clemente has some of the snazziest utility boxes around, and their numbers will increase in 2014.
Called the “street art program” and enacted in 2012, artists have rendered 10 boxes, well, less utilitarian-looking. Another six are scheduled for makeovers this year, according to a city press release.
If you’re an artist looking to reach a wide, albeit fast-driving audience, the city invites you submit your concept – up to three of them – between Monday and Feb 21 p.m. to Breanna Parrett at ParrettB@san-clemente.org. To you procrastinators, the drop-dead deadline is 5 p.m. Feb. 21.
The chosen artists or team or artists will each receive a $500 honorarium and a voucher for up to $200 in project materials. The application is available here.
A jury of artists, art professionals, residents and community representatives will review the submissions. The city and San Clemente Art Association anticipate awarding the grants by spring 2014. For more information, contact Amber Gregg, Associate Planner at (949) 361-6196 or GreggA@san-clemente.org.
