Opportunity for PG artists!

Deadline to Apply: January 30th, 2017, 4:00PM
$500 Honorarium
The Prince George’s County Traffic Box Art Wrap project, coordinated by the Hyattsville Community Development Corporation (Hyattsville CDC), funded by The Prince George’s County Executive’s Community Partnership Grant, with the support of Prince George’s Department of Public Works and Transportation (PGDPW&T), is announcing a Call for Artists.  

Hyattsville CDC seeks five (5) designs for reproduction on vinyl wraps to cover 11 traffic boxes, at pre-determined sites within Prince George’s County. Traffic signal cabinets – the grey metal structures located at every signalized intersection – are vulnerable to graffiti and vandalism.  This project will utilize a public art application to address community blight and enhance the visual landscape, focusing on boxes located in the county’s T.N.I (Transforming Neighborhoods Initiative) communities.
This call is open to all artists, graphic designers, illustrators, and photographers who currently live or work within Prince George’s County.  Submitted designs must be original artwork and can be created in any medium, so long as it can be represented in, and is submitted as, a high-resolution digital image without loss of integrity or quality.
