[ARCHIVED] Calling All Artists: Utility Box Wraps

Pedestrian Park utility box

Help brighten Issaquah's streetscapes.

In 2015, the City of Issaquah Arts Commission started a traffic utility box wrap program as part of its public art program.

Using original artwork by local artists, two traffic signal boxes were wrapped — one at Front Street and Sunset Way, and one at Wildwood Boulevard Southwest and Newport Way Southwest.

The commission is now seeking original artwork to create additional wraps for traffic signal control boxes in Issaquah.

To apply, submit the following materials via email:

  • A brief letter of interest that includes artist contact information and description of artwork(s).
  • An electronic file of artwork(s); please send in a size and format that is appropriate for email. (Ifselected, a higher resolution file will be requested at a later date.)

Submissions must be received by 5 p.m. Feb. 4, 2016.

Artists will receive $200 for each of original artwork design that is selected for use. The artist is not responsible for fabrication or installation.

Installation will occur in 2016. The estimated lifetime of the wrap is five to seven years. Wraps may be removed at any time at the discretion of the City.

All applicants will receive notification upon submitting an application and once artworks have been selected.
