CALLING ALL ARTISTS!
Application due Thursday, July 23, 2020 at 5:00 p.m.
The City of Burbank's Cultural Arts Commission, in partnership with the Parks and Recreation Department and the Public Works Department, is pleased to announce a new phase of our Burbank Arts Beautification program. This program aims to help beautify our community, enhancing the lives of our residents as well as those who work in the city.
The Burbank Arts Beautification Program is dedicated to exhibiting visual art outside the constraints of museums and galleries. To that end, various utility boxes throughout Magnolia Park will be painted with original art inspired by the theme of "Celebrate Community ". Artists will be selected through a competitive process.
Submissions will be reviewed by a selection committee consisting of City of Burbank representatives and members of art communities.
Artists will receive a stipend of $1,000. The stipend is all-inclusive and must cover every cost incurred by the artist in the course of designing and installing the artwork.
The City of Burbank Parks & Recreation Department will begin accepting applications on Monday, June 15. The deadline to submit the application and supplemental materials is Thursday, July 23 by 5:00 p.m.
