Old Town Temecula Utility Box Art Project

Call for Artists Utility Box Project Opens in new windowIn keeping with the City of Temecula’s management philosophy of Building Greatness, Maintaining Excellence, the City of Temecula announces a Call for Artists to submit artwork for consideration in a pilot program for vinyl wrapping select Old Town Temecula Utility Boxes with original imagery.

The theme to this artistic call is simply Temecula.  With the rich history and diverse population that makes up Temecula, the possibilities for design range from whimsical to landscape, from pictorial to abstract, allowing for open interpretation of the theme for the selected utility box wraps and make lasting impressions on residents and visitors.

Selected artists will receive a $400 stipend for the use of their work.   A total of 16 Utility Boxes scattered throughout Old Town Temecula will be installed (beginning in late-JUN or early-JUL of 2022).  This project will be accompanied by an online presence that will highlight each artist and provide background on their artwork and style.  For more information, please email ArtsAndCulture@TemeculaCA.gov, or call (951) 694-6450.
