Utility Box Art Program

Call to Artists

The City of Maywood is issuing a Call to Artists for those interested in creating artwork to be displayed on City-owned utility boxes throughout Maywood. Artists will be selected, competitively, and artwork is scheduled to be installed during the 2023-2024 fiscal year. Artists of all backgrounds are encouraged to apply to help enhance common traffic control utility boxes and create a more attractive cityscape.


The Utility Box Art Program’s goal is to honor diversity, highlight local history and multi-cultural heritage, reflect community values, deter unsightly graffiti and continue to foster civic pride. The program offers artists the opportunity to showcase their perspective art. In addition, the program will enhance the aesthetics of local street landscapes in unexpected places with creative, colorful, and distinctive works of art.
