Pawtucket Paintbox Project to beautify utility boxes

Posted: Updated:
 Olivia Cianci

            The Pawtucket “Paintbox Project” is turning 16 dull utility boxes into works of art throughout the city.

            The Paintbox Project, modeled after a similar, successful project in Providence, is headed by a volunteer arts panel. The panel is in charge of encouraging projects to recognize and celebrate local artists.

            Artists receive $300 for any supplies needed. To apply, they must be at least 18 years old and live in/have a permanent studio or office in the city. They can submit up to 3 designs.

            Designs must be appropriate to location and audience, and respond to the “urban context” of the city. Applicants can specify where they would like to work, and are expected to clean and prime the utility box surface. The deadline for entries is August 14th.
