CALL TO ARTISTS: Request for Qualifications for Downtown Napa Art Wrap Project


The Downtown Napa Association and the City of Napa invite artists and artist teams residing in Napa, Sonoma, Lake, Yolo, or Solano County to submit their qualifications for a utility box vinyl wrap project.

Artists will be selected based on their past work and paid $500 to create a design that will be transferred to vinyl (by the Downtown Napa Association), and wrapped around a signal utility box located in downtown Napa.

The mission of the Downtown Napa Association is to foster better business in downtown Napa and to promote the area as the community’s center for business, culture and entertainment. In support of that effort, the Association is funding a utility box wrap art project in downtown Napa.  The Association is funding the transformation of up to 13 City of Napa boxes of varying sizes into artworks. The artworks will be sited on up to 13 selected City of Napa utility boxes throughout downtown Napa. 

The Downtown Napa Association Artwork Wrap Project is consistent with the mission of the City of Napa Public Art program which supports the integration of art into the public realm through a variety of different programs created to “contribute to a more livable and visually stimulating environment.”  The proposed objectives of the artworks are to:

  • Create a unique experience in downtown
  • Inspire businesses, residents, and visitors
  • Support regional artists
