The City of Grover Beach is implementing a program to support public art that will enhance W. Grand Avenue through the painting of utility boxes. The art will enhance the aesthetics of the City, promote civic pride, increase pedestrian traffic and extend public art to new areas. The painted utility boxes will create an attractive environment for locals and tourists and allow art to be introduced to the public in a unique way. The goal is to bring public art beauty to unexpected places such as utility boxes.
This call for submissions is for painting 8 large utility boxes with a small adjacent accessory utility box at selected locations along W. Grand Avenue, from 4th Street to Oak Park Boulevard, Grover Beach.
