Utility box art program announced for downtown Orangeville

The Town of Orangeville has just launched a new arts-based project designed to recognize local artists, celebrate the Town’s culture and history, and promote Orangeville as an arts and culture hub for the region.

The Utility Box Art Display Program will provide local artists with the opportunity to submit unique artwork for installation on selected Town utility boxes using a custom vinyl wrap process. Winning submissions will be selected by a jury, and successful artists will receive a fee of $500 for their designs. Artist applicants must reside in Dufferin County and must be at least 18 years old. For more information visit the Arts and Culture section of the Town’s website.

In its inaugural year of 2016, three to four utility boxes will be wrapped in unique art. The boxes approved for 2016 installations are located at Broadway/Second Street, Broadway/Mill Street, Broadway/John Street, and a fourth location is under consideration.
