The City of Minneapolis is seeking to work with 20 artists from Minnesota to create the next generation of Minneapolis Art Wraps!
The Minneapolis Art Wrap program is a collection of pre-approved utility box wrap designs, that are used by neighborhoods and business districts to wrap their local utility boxes. The wraps began as a pilot program in attempt to decrease tagging and graffiti on the boxes, and has become very popular across the City of Minneapolis. The Minneapolis Art Wrap program was initiated by the Minneapolis Arts Commission with the goal of creating a vibrant city-wide gallery that celebrates the range and talent of creative artists living and working in the area. Art on utility boxes has made a big impact on communities, and the City is eager to welcome and share this next generation of Art Wraps.
