Current Opportunities for Artists
Utility Box Mural Project - Deadline Extended!
This public art mural program celebrates local artwork and encourages regional artists to share their creativity throughout the City of South San Francisco. Vibrant artwork helps deter unsightly graffiti and creates pleasant spaces for residents and visitors alike. We invite artists to participate in this unique program designed to transform common utility boxes into works of art, which will add beauty to the South San Francisco streetscape for years to come.
Interested parties are encouraged to read the program guidelines and submit an application and sample of work
