Call for Expressions of Interest: Utility Box Wrapping Downtown

August 11, 2020

Utility Box Wrapping Downtown

The City of Lethbridge Public Art Program is seeking artists to design artworks to be used to vinyl wrap utility boxes located in Galt Gardens and at Casa. The boxes to be wrapped are a variety of sizes and shapes. Artists will be commissioned to provide designs for the vinyl wraps but will not be responsible for the fabrication and installation of the wraps. This work will be completed by City of Lethbridge contractors. Artists selected to produce a design will be required to participate in a workshop with a project graphic designer in advance of executing their design. Specific utility boxes will be assigned to artists at the workshop and information on requirements for modifying designs so they are compatible with the wrapping process will be provided.


Project Budget
Selected artists will receive an artist fee of $500 per utility box.
