Concord Art Association and the City of Concord wrapped up the Utility Box Art Pilot Project with public events on September 12th and 13th. At the start of the Thursday Music and Market concert, Vice-Mayor Tim McGallian introduced the eleven artists who created the amazing art for the project. On stage were Chris Ball, Janet Brown, Pat Calabro, Melissa Claros, Carissa Fei, Jennifer Granat, Denise Hillman, Renaye Johnson, Thea Jue, Samineh Perryman, and Sharon Petersen. Then on Friday afternoon, the Greater Concord Chamber of Commerce hosted a ribbon cutting at which Mayor Carlyn Obringer presented to our association a proclamation which acknowledged CAA's role in the project. Thank you to all the members who attended the events to support the artists!
The Board of Directors and the Utility Box Committee thank all of the volunteers who helped make our first public art project a success for the artists, CAA, and our community. And for those members who have not yet seen the boxes, please take a stroll around Todos Santos Plaza! Click below to see pix of the event.
