Utility Box Art Project
Driving around South Salt Lake is much like driving around any other busy city, until.....you get to an intersection. You are likely to find a piece of artwork right in front of you to pause and think about the beauty in our world. These pieces of art are made possible by a collaboration between the SSL Urban Livability Department and the SSL Arts Council. The Urban Livability Department was motivated to cover the boxes, owned by a variety of government agencies (UDOT, UTA, SSL Public Works) to prevent graffitti from covering them, and to celebrate the community's creative side.
Anyone is invited to submit artwork, which is reviewed by the Arts Council and recommended for display. As of summer 2016, 28 utility boxes in South Salt Lake have become works of art.
Thank you to Comcast, for their donation with Comcast Cares Day that pays for the wrapped art, and thank you to the creative artists who have submitted and donated original artwork to display.
Submit your Artwork
If you want to showcase your art or simply want to brighten up your community, send us your artwork!
Submissions are accepted at anytime, as we have a rolling deadline and put up new box wraps all year long. Please submit to the Arts Council via email or drop original art work off at City Hall - the Mayor's Office.
