The City of Ithaca Public Art Commission (PAC) is excited to announce a call for proposals for Commons Boxes: An Electrical Box Mural Project.  PAC is working with the Commons Management Team to create murals on three large electrical boxes located on the newly redesigned Ithaca Commons. Common Boxes will be the third installment of the PAC’s 21 Boxes project, which has created more than 40 mini-murals on electrical boxes throughout the city. Successful proposals for these three boxes take into consideration the natural beauty of the area, a sense of community, and/or the Commons as the heart of Ithaca.  Attached please find more information about the project as well as application instructions.  This information is also available on the City of Ithaca’s website at: Proposals.

Deadline: Proposals must be submitted by Wednesday, June 8, 2016 at 4:00 p.m.

People of all ages, backgrounds, and abilities are encouraged to apply.  Please share this announcement with any and all who may be interested.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact:
