Call to Artists: Capitol Box Revival

DEADLINE: November 16, 2020

Capitol Area Development Authority (CADA) with the Sacramento Office of Arts + Culture (OAC) invite artists (and artist teams) who are 18 years or older, professional artists, and reside within 100 miles of Sacramento to be considered for CADA’s “Capitol Box Art Revival” to submit their qualifications for a new box wrap project in the downtown area of Sacramento.

CADA is the sponsor for this public art project. The original Capitol Box Art Project was launched in 2015. Selected artists were given a 3-year maintenance commitment with the understanding that after that time a new round of artists would be selected to refresh the downtown utility boxes. This opportunity will also give artists a 3-year maintenance commitment.
