Call for Artists: Transformer Box Project

ARTISTS LIVING OR WORKING IN ARLINGTON (ages 18 and up) are invited to submit designs for a new series of artwork to be painted between  on transformer boxes along Mass Ave.

The theme this year is IN MOTION, interpreted in any way you would like. Examples: transportation modes like feet, bikes, or buses; birds in flight, animals or humans running; or an abstract representation of movement. Designs should be bold and read well from a distance.

Submissions will be juried by members of Arlington Public Art, the Arlington Commission for Arts and Culture, and members of Arlington’s business community. A stipend of $300 will be awarded to each artist.
