Call for Artists

Public Art Project - Downtown Utility Boxes
Registration period:  April 20, 2019 through May 10, 2019

CAA is collaborating with the City of Concord to design art for eleven utility boxes around the perimeter of Todos Santos Plaza. Some of the boxes will be painted and others will be wrapped with printed vinyl. A professional panel will jury all submissions and work with the City to select finalists who will receive cash awards.

The theme for this project is Music & Market - we're looking for professional artwork in a variety of styles related to downtown Concord's popular summer concerts and farmers markets. Think music, food, summer and community fun!

This is a complex project - artists who wish to submit their design concepts for consideration must first carefully review each of the following four documents (click each link to download, view and/or print) and prep your required images in advance.
