The City of Eureka invites artists to apply to install murals on utility boxes. The goal of Eureka Box Art! is to use utility boxes as "canvases" for original pieces of art as well as to contribute to the vitality and attractiveness of the city, while deterring graffiti.
Now Open! Call for Artist Proposals
Artist applications are due by May 25th, 2023
This program is open to individual artists, a team of artists, or community groups with a designated lead artist. Selected artists shall be compensated for the application of their artwork and designs.

Interested artists will be required to complete an application, which can be found here.
Are you looking to sponsor a Utility Box Mural?
- Eureka Box Art! is now looking for businesses or individuals to sponsor utility box murals. We are in the process of finalizing which boxes will be available for sponsorship. If you are interested in sponsoring a box and please sign up and we will be in contact with you as we have boxes available.
- Sponsors will be able to choose a design from a portfolio of designs. These designs come from the Call for Proposals process and have been approved by the Art and Culture Commission (see above). If you have an artist in mind for a box you’d like to sponsor, they will need to submit their designs through the Call for Proposals and be approved by the Arts and Culture Commission.
We are always happy to walk you through the process and answer any questions you may have. Please call or email Sarah West for more information.
