Calling all Artists! Proposals Accepted for New Public Art Project

Want to be part of Newton’s newest public art project? Proposals are now being accepted for NewtonSERVES BoxART, a plan to create art on those drab, green utility boxes that are scattered throughout the city.

To aesthetically enhance village space, all Newton artists, amateur and experienced alike, are invited to submit proposals. The NewtonSERVES BoxART Committee feels vibrant public art creates an inviting environment and a sense of place and will choose proposals that will help achieve these goals. Proposals should be imaginative, positive, colorful and create delight.

Between five and 12 artists will be chosen to paint the boxes between April 27 and May 12 as part of NewtonSERVES. The Request for Proposals can be downloaded from the website (PDF). More details are available at the Newton Community Pride site.
