Calling All Artists – Let’s turn gray utility boxes into art!
The City of San Leandro is partnering with Streets Alive to develop artistic enhancements for those ugly gray utility boxes you see on street sidewalks. With a theme of “Sustainability, Technology & Innovation,” the Streets Alive team is looking for local San Leandro or Alameda County artists and community members who are interested in displaying their artwork on a box. Selected artists will be compensated for their work and their art will display on East 14th Street and in other locations around the city.
By installing artwork on utility boxes in San Leandro, we create a platform for storytelling and communication, transforming ugly, obtrusive utility boxes into vibrant art pieces and a topic of interest for the community. If the initial pilot project is successful, the City will look to partner with property owners and expand the program to additional locations.
