With the help of several members of the Campbell Artists’ Guild, the City of Campbell and its Civic Improvement Commission has just launched its utility box beautification project, Art Outside the Box. You may have noticed the results of such projects throughout San Jose or Santa Cruz, and other nearby cities where
artist have undertaken the beautification of utility boxes.
Art Outside the Box provides an opportunity for artists residing in Santa Clara County to paint one of up to ten utility boxes throughout Campbell. It would be such a source of pride for the Guild if one or more artists from within our organization were selected to participate. An Honorarium is offered and the amount depends on the box selected. Box prep and sealing will be provided by the city. If you think you might be interested, please see the City’s website www.cityofcampbell.com for links to more information on eligibility, guidelines, box locations, photos, plus instructions on how to submit your application and conceptual drawing.
To participate, you must be a resident of Santa Clara County. Your application and concept must be received by 5:00 p.m. on April 3, 2015.
If painting a utility box is not your strong suit, you may still participate by becoming a patron or donor (no amount is too small), and you may do so on the web site or in person.
