The City of Bremerton, Public Works Department is updating and replacing utility boxes in Bremerton. The Bremerton Arts Commission has been asked to help select the art for the new utility boxes located throughout Bremerton.
The City’s Arts Commission wishes to locate public art in places that will have the greatest opportunity for public interaction and to reach citizens that may not otherwise experience the arts. The Commission believes that the utility box project presents a unique opportunity to achieve this goal.
The City of Bremerton’s Arts Commission is selecting art to wrap on utility boxes. As new boxes are replaced art will be added to them for beauty and to protect the boxes from vandalism. A digital image of the selected art work will be printed on a special material and wrapped around the box. Words, sayings and logos can be added. The selected artist(s) will receive an award (stipend) of $500 and recognition on the box and promotional materials.
