Calling all Businesses! Sponsor a Utility Box Mural!

Since last year, the City of San Leandro has worked with Streets Alive on a demonstration project to develop artistic enhancements for seven groups of utility boxes; transforming these drab, gray boxes into works of art. The City is now looking for businesses or individuals to sponsor more utility box murals citywide. Below are some details about how to sponsor a box mural:

  • Approximate cost is $2,500 per box (actual cost depends on box size, location and artwork selected);
  • City will administer a call-for-artists, development, preparation and installation of mural(s);
  • Business/Individual will select artwork and artist.
  • Utility box artwork cannot be an advertisement for a business, however the sponsoring business will receive credit in the title label at the base of the box. It fine to use artwork that is thematically consistent with the sponsoring or neighboring businesses.

Want to sponsor a mural on one of the boxes?
