Artists Enhance Utility Boxes in City Neighborhoods
Mayor Angel Taveras and the Department of Art, Culture + Tourism invite artists to integrate art into existing civic architecture to increase cultural participation and provoke public engagement in Neighborhood Market areas.
The Art Transformer Project, organized by the Department of Art, Culture + Tourism, is geared towards the recognition and celebration of local artists. Artists are asked to paint City of Providence utility boxes with original designs. Once professionally painted, these utility boxes in neighborhood business districts will contribute to the vitality and attractiveness of the urban streetscape and deter graffiti.
Participating Providence artists will receive a $350 stipend from the Providence Economic Development Partnership upon completion of their box. Artists are responsible for the cost of all materials required to complete and protect their artwork.
