Hear ye – Hear ye!
The City of Monrovia is pleased to announce the winners of the 2020 Art on the Box Contest.
Side note: Did you know there is an actual Town Crier Competition? Neither did we...check it out… Annual Town Crier Competition
So back to business...The Art on the Box program was created to add some local color to our streets and beautify our communities by turning blank utility boxes into unique, stunning works of public art (trust us, this is no easy feat!) The program improves our neighborhoods while supporting local artists (and their mad skills!) For some light reading, check out the full story of the Art on the Box Program.
Each year, the City reaches out to our local creative community to submit their designs for consideration. This year there were thirteen entries and six images were chosen for creation. (While they were all terrific, we needed to stay within the budget.) In the upcoming weeks the artists will paint various utility boxes throughout Monrovia...of course while maintaining social distancing protocols!
Can’t wait that long??? You don't need to twist our arm, we're happy to share a sneak peek at the images that will be coming soon to blank utility box near you!
In addition to the six boxes that will soon be painted, Monrovia already has 20 Art on the Box creations. Twenty you ask? Yes! How many have you spotted in our beautiful city?
Sounds like a great scavenger hunt to us (#artinmonrovia)!
Here's a hint: Many of them are located off around Myrtle Avenue, but not all of them.
Want to know the location and description of all boxes??? We hope your answer is yes.
Then, visit this Blog regularly (or better yet subscribe) to get updates on the finished boxes and locations.
We're sooo excited to see the finished pieces and share them with you!
