Artists: Glendale Has a Project for You

The Glendale Arts and Culture Commission has issued a call for artists to apply to paint murals on city utility boxes from Oct. 16-18 as part of a program aimed at bringing beauty to unexpected places throughout the Jewel City.
Artists who are selected will each receive a $750 stipend to paint a utility box this fall. Applications must be submitted by 5 p.m. Friday, Sept. 18. Visit for more information.
Beyond the Box is a utility box mural project supported by the city and the Glendale Arts & Culture Commission, with funding from the Urban Art Program. Now in its seventh year, Beyond the Box beautifies the city’s streetscape with colorful and interesting murals installed by selected artists on city-owned utility boxes. To date, more than 100 artists have completed over 100 murals on utility boxes throughout the city. The program has been very well received by both residents and visitors.
The commission’s goal is to enrich the human experience, reinforce Glendale’s identity and civic pride through arts and culture, and recognize the importance of arts to our quality of life and the local economy. This is accomplished by the integration of arts and culture into the daily life of the Glendale residents through urban design, planning, economic development and education.
