The City of Vancouver is asking local artists to submit their applications for this year’s utility box art wrap call.
The temporary digital printed artwork will be installed along commercial streets throughout the city. The project is used as a way to enhance the public realm by featuring creative concepts by local talent. A glance through last year’s art wraps shows a diverse selection of designs that include everything from leaping purple wolves to black-and-white faces to delicate pink flowers.
Artists will be commissioned by an external three-to-five member panel of local artists and art professionals. In addition, up to 20 boxes will be wrapped this year.
The art wrap call is currently open, and applications will be accepted until April 10 at 4pm. Short-listed artists will be announced in May, and the artwork will be due in June.
The installation will be complete in July or August.
