Deter Graffiti and Beautify the Community!

CALL FOR ART!! We are looking for local artwork to wrap six utility cabinets this year.  Please see below for criteria and themes.

To submit artwork for consideration in 2018 please email your artwork in the accepted format along with this Artist Submission Form.

 The 2018 Submissions will close on January 31, 2018

The goal of this program is to deter graffiti and beautify the community. The art covering City owned utility cabinets is selected local art and photography. The Community Enhancement Advisory Committee members vet the submissions. The Committee uses the following criteria to select the art:

• Local images
• Visual appeal
• Ease to wrap the image on the cabinet

Themes are:

  • Photography (local)
  • Cultural
  • Youth
  • Art


The utility box wrapping has been completed for this year.  There will be a delay due to construction and weather for one of the wraps, but it will be completed as soon as it is warm enough to do so in the spring.  We thank you for your patience and understanding.

Downtown Area

In 2014, Utility Cabinets in the Downtown core were wrapped with historical photos to celebrate Grande Prairie's 100th Anniversary. This theme was continued in 2015 with four more utility cabinets wrapped in historical photos, such as this one.
