public art opportunities

The Arts and Culture Commission recently had a call for artists to transform the city's traffic boxes, trash cans, and benches around town in works of art.
     It's an opportunity for artists and teams of artists to create dynamic installations that reflect the identity of not only the historic downtown neighborhood, but also will be considered for all neighborhoods, parks, and schools.
     These surfaces are just in the first round of public art. Eventually the commission hopes to sponsor murals, sculptures, picnic tables, and even freeway underpasses.
