The City of Williams Lake and the Central Cariboo Arts and Culture Society are inviting art submissions for their cabinet wrap initiative.
Winning submissions will be printed on vinyl and wrapped around the 13 city-owned utility cabinets, with credits to the artist on both the installed art and on the city’s website.
The city says the initiative will not only help beautify Williams Lake, but also address one of the blank canvasses for graffiti in the community.
Submissions will consist of photos or photos of artwork that relate to the 10 priority areas of the Official Community Plan:
• Social well being
• Lively downtown
• Active and convenient transportation
• Affordable housing and livable neighbourhoods
• World-class recreation
• Cherished local ecosystems
• Arts, culture and heritage
• Partnering with First Nations
• Resilient economy
• Local food and agriculture
The submission deadline is June 15. A submission committee made up of City of Williams Lake councillors and representatives of the Central Cariboo Arts and Culture Society board will select the winning submissions. Winners will be invited to attend the installation of the vinyl wrapping of the utility boxes, their biographies will be posted on the city website, and will be recognized by city council for their contributions to the City of Williams Lake.
“This initiative is an opportunity to partner with artists and the art community, to make our city even more beautiful, and to protect city infrastructure from graffiti,” says Coun. Laurie Walters, chair of the Community Services Committee in a press release, along with councillors Geoff Bourdon and Sue Zacharias, a member of the Submission Committee. “I encourage everyone to submit their work and be part of this exciting project.”
