The City of Pico Rivera is launching a Utility Box Art Program to showcase local artists and provide public art throughout the community. The City intends to install public art on City-owned utility boxes using vinyl wrap.

We invite community members, including art students, to participate in Phase Two of the program*.

When making the selection for the Utility Box Art Program, the following will be considered:
  • Artistic excellence, innovation, and originality
  • Whether the art meets the goal of the project and has a broad appeal
  • Whether the art transforms the project area
  • Whether the art meets the theme:
    • Sunrise/Sunset scenes
    • Represent various aspects of the City’s local history, past and present, to reflect the City’s diverse and multi-cultural heritage
