Windsor, California (January 13, 2021) – The Town of Windsor is pleased to announce the release of a new utility box painting program called Discovering Windsor Through Art. This program aims to help beautify our community, enhancing the lives of residents as well as those who visit and work in our Town. This program is designed to grow and develop the talent from within to allow our community to discover each other through art.
Discovering Windsor Through Art is dedicated to exhibiting visual art outside the constraints of museums and galleries. To that end, we have identified 24 utility boxes that will be painted with rotating original art inspired by an annual theme. In 2021, five – seven gifted artists will be selected through a competitive process to paint designated utility boxes. Over the next few years, this program will grow to eventually include all 24 boxes in Windsor and will offer original art throughout town.
The 2021 theme of “Community Healing” is designed to highlight the resiliency of Windsor and help the community heal through art. Specific locations will be assigned by the Town once the Artists have been chosen. This project is open to all Sonoma County regional artists however a priority will be given to Windsor residents and students who attend a Windsor Unified School District school. Artists/Art Teams (Artists) may submit only one application for this project.
To apply, please submit a completed application, conceptual rendering, and up to three digital images of prior work and return it to the Town by March 1, 2021. Application and additional information can be found at: www.townofwindsor.com/paac .
