PaintBox – Call for Designs - Deadline Extended to 4/12/19

The Mill Valley Arts Commission’s Art in Public Places program is designed to bring the power and delight of art into our everyday experiences of our natural environment through the transformation of ordinary objects – the utility box, the park bench, the mailbox, the ping pong table, etc.

This Public Art Program Art in Public Places includes five program elements; one of which is PaintBox; the aim of this project is to highlight local artists within our community and, in doing so, brighten up the streets, beautifying ugly utility boxes and deterring vandalism.

Selected artists or artist groups will receive a $500 artist honorarium plus a materials reimbursement for materials and supplies not to exceed $250.
