Arlington Public Art, a subcommittee of the Arlington Commission for Arts and Culture (ACAC), is seeking sponsors for its Transformer Box Mural Project. The project was started in 2014 when APA put out an initial call for artists.
"We want to revive this project because it is so popular, and also because it brings added vibrancy and color to our town." said Adria Arch, co-chair of ACAC. "The entries are juried, so the quality is very high. We are in need of sponsorships to be able to pay the artists." Each artist receives a stipend of $300.
Each business sponsor will have their business name printed on the box and will receive publicity through on the Arts Arlington website and in social media.
The theme this year is "In Motion". Artists are encouraged to create many interpretations of this idea, from transportation modes, to humans or animals in motion, to abstract interpretations. The submissions will be juried by members of the Arlington Commission for Arts and Culture and members of the business community.
