River Falls Community Arts Base – Utility Box Beautification
The City of River Falls and River Falls Community Arts Base is seeking qualified artists and requesting proposals from individuals/teams from the surrounding community and from UW-River Falls to create two- dimensional permanent murals on selected utility boxes located in River Falls. This project will not only mitigate the negative effects of graffiti and unwanted postings on utility boxes, and thus reducing maintenance costs to the City of River Falls, it will also create lasting pieces of art that will improve the appearance of downtown for residents and visitors alike. This project will recognize and celebrate local artists, showcase local history, and foster a culture of the arts in River Falls. This project will add a unique attraction to the area encouraging visitors to stop and explore the town. Each participant will develop and submit a preliminary visual concept for the mural to be installed on the selected utility boxes.  
Deadline: May 8, 2020. Apply Online.
