  4. 4. Design and Installation
  • Step One

    1. The Kennewick Arts Commission is soliciting proposals for digital artwork for vinyl wrapping of traffic utility boxes throughout the city.  The objective is to infuse art on an otherwise utilitarian surface, discourage graffiti and beautify street corners in Kennewick.  


      ARTWORK:   The spirit of the art should reflect the theme of the zone in which the traffic box is located. Art Opportunity Zone Description and Map are available on our website at Go2Kennewick.com/Art .

       

      Approved and funded locations:

      • N Columbia Center Blvd and W Canal Dr
      • W Clearwater Ave and N Edison St
      • Gage Blvd and N Steptoe St
      • W 27th Ave and S Olympia St (funded by Sun Pacific Energy)
      • S Columbia Center Blvd and W 10th Ave
      • S Kellogg St and W 10th Ave
      • S Union St and W 10th Ave
      • N Edison St and W Canal Dr
    2. Additional utility box locations:

      Utility boxes are located throughout the city with potential to be wrapped in art.  Submitted art not selected for above locations will be kept on file.  Art may be approved for a utility box in a different location than what is currently funded.  If/when additional funding becomes available, you will be contacted if your art is selected for placement or for further development. 

                    

      Because of the public nature, artwork may not contain advertising, religious art, sexual content, violent or other content unsuitable for all ages and cannot convey political partisanship.

    3. BUDGET:   Selected artists will be awarded $300 per box.  Artists can submit up to 4 designs.

      ELIGIBLE ARTISTS:  Artists or teams living in the Pacific Northwest may apply. Submitted designs must be original works of the artist and in compliance with all existing copyright laws.    

      DEADLINE:  Submittals must be received no later than 4:30 pm, Wednesday, June 1st, 2022.
