Series Electrical Box Wraps


The City of Hamilton is seeking Artists and Artist-Led Teams to submit proposals to design a series of wraps for five (5) electrical boxes in Downtown Hamilton. The City will be responsible for printing the digitally-submitted artwork onto vinyl wraps and installation.

Artists may create work specifically for this Call or may reformat existing work. The work can be created in any medium but, if selected, must be provided as high-resolution digital files suitable for large-format printing.

Artists will be selected by a citizen Jury through a two-stage process involving a written statement of approach and qualifications followed by submission of a detailed proposal by up to six (6) selected Artists. Short-listed Artists completing a Stage Two submission will receive a $500 honorarium.

Award: $4,000
