BEAVERTON, Ore. – The City of Beaverton invites artists to submit images for the 2017 Beautify Beaverton project. The selected artwork will enhance Beaverton’s existing infrastructure by transforming utility and traffic signal boxes into artistic features throughout the city.
Images selected will be printed on high-quality, adhesive vinyl material and wrapped around utility and traffic signal boxes around Beaverton. These art wraps will remain on display for at least a year. This project is part of the City of Beaverton’s public art master plan. Artists are encouraged to represent Beaverton and its diverse and vibrant community in their proposed designs.
In 2016, more than 40 city-owned trash receptacles received a makeover. To view these wraps and learn more about the project, visit www.BeavertonOregon.gov/VinylArtWraps.
Clean Slate Group will be installing the vinyl art wraps on behalf of the city. To view past work, visit www.cleanslategroupus.com.
Applications are due Monday, June 12 by 11 p.m. Students and emerging artists are encouraged to apply. Artists may submit up to 5 images for consideration. Artists who submit designs that are selected for this project will receive a stipend of $200 per selected design. More than one of an artist’s designs may be selected.
