Empire’s Utility Box Art Project

by | Feb 27, 2023 | Uncategorized

The Community Coalition of Empire (CCE) is pleased to once again be working with the City of Coos Bay and the Coos Art Museum to bring art to the Empire District. The Community Coalition of Empire has identified 13 city owned utility boxes in need of local artists to develop and hand paint their visions of our nautical theme, “Historic Empire with a Focus on the Waters.” Artists may use the completed Empire Mural to draw inspiration, or they are free to use their imagination. The color palette will be blue, red, white, black, and yellow, and can be mixed according to the artist’s discretion.
This project will happen in two phases with an estimated completion date of July 23, 2023. Artists will be given all supplies necessary to make their vision a reality. In addition, each artist will receive a stipend of $100 and will be honored at a reception upon completion of the project. This project is open to all artists. Submissions must be original and may be submitted via:
