VALLEY GLEN – Councilmember Krekorian, in collaboration with the Greater Valley Glen Neighborhood Council and the Department of Cultural Affairs, is seeking talented visual artists, artist teams and arts organizations to create unique temporary artworks on utility boxes throughout District 2.

Located at the northeast corner of Fulton Avenue and Burbank Boulevard, adjacent to Los Angeles Valley College, the utility boxes will provide another medium to display public art in the community. Artists will be required submit designs based on the theme “the beauty of native plant” along with their applications. The selected artists will receive a stipend of $500 for their work. Paint, materials and graffiti coating for the project will also be provided.

The Utility Box Art Project is an opportunity for local artists to beautify their East Valley community by transforming utility or electrical boxes into distinctive works of art. This program encourages the creative interaction of artists, city officials and community members to enliven the public space in these corridors.

All projects must adhere to Department of Transportation Guidelines and comply with city codes and an approval process set forth by the Council office. Submit all application materials on or before May 15.
