Enter ARTBOX contest

Ready to get creative? Bloomington’s Creative Placemaking Commission, in partnership with Artistry, is seeking designs to transform utility boxes in the South Loop into creative objects of art. Designs should celebrate Bloomington while enhancing the district’s character and vitality. The contest is open to anyone 18 or older, working in any medium—paint, photography, etc. Submit one design for consideration. A $1,000 stipend will be provided to selected applicants. Bloomington residents will be given priority. Proposals are due by December 15. For guidelines and an application, call 952-563-8744 or visit blm.mn/placemaking.
