Wellesley’s Public Art Committee is so satisfied with the three electrical boxes recently painted by artists that it is seeking candidates to paint three more.
Selected artists for the Electrical Box Art Program will receive a $1,000 stipend, per location, to cover time, transportation, and supplies. The program is open to amateurs and professionals, including art and educational institutions. Full details embedded below, but know submissions must be made by Aug. 15 and selected artists must paint the boxes in the fall before Oct. 31.
Proposals should be positive, original, and colorful and may (but are not required to) reflect the following:
- The immediate environment
- The character and culture of the Town of Wellesley
- The history of the area
- Community pride
Location of boxes:
- Washington Street and Glenn Road.
- Crest Road and Linden Street
- Central Street and Weston Road
