The Ferndale Arts Commission is seeking designs that can be reproduced as a vinyl wrap and applied to traffic signal boxes throughout the City.
This opportunity is open to amateur and professional artists of all levels, working in any medium, as long as the final artwork can be translated and digitally reproduced on a 2-dimensional vinyl wrap. The project is designed to enhance the public realm by adding works of art by local artists to utilitarian surfaces that are often targeted by vandalism.
The wrapped boxes are intended to enhance neighborhood and community identity, turn ordinary spaces into community landmarks, and promote community dialogue.
The deadline for submissions is 7/31. There is no honorarium for this community engagement project. Artists are welcome to submit more than one design; there is potential for more than one design to be selected from an artist.
Templates are available for download here as a pdf. Illustrator file available upon request.
For questions and final submissions, please email FerndaleArtsCommission@gmail.com.
