deadline to apply: January 31, 2019.

In an effort to build on the city’s popular and successful traffic signal box art initiative, the Benicia Art and Culture Commission (BACC) is announcing two new calls for area artists! 


1) Utility Boxes

There are two traffic signal boxes to be transformed into works of art.

The BACC utility box program has been very popular in Benicia. Here’s your chance to be part of it. There are currently two more city utility boxes available to artists to transform. This is a paid project and the Arts and Culture Commission will also pay for supplies. We are accepting applications now. Applications must include both the application and the application cover sheet. 


2) Selected City Benches

Selected Benicia’s downtown benches need a facelift! We are expanding the public art initiative to include selected city’s benches. There are 10 benches available to artists to transform into works of art. This is a paid project and the Arts and Culture Commission will also pay for supplies. We are accepting applications now.

(select the specific bench location you are interested in):

Promenade

city hall

library

first street

Applications must include both the application and the application cover sheet. 


These projects are great opportunities to have your work viewed by the entire town and visitors to the area! It’s a great project in which student artists, art groups/guilds, or individual artists can engage with the community in a very tangible way. 


It’s free to apply and artists can apply individually or as a group. Each project requires a separate application. The deadline to apply for both of these projects is December 17, 2018.
