ArtBox: Evangeline Corridor Initiative

Acadiana Center for the Arts (AcA) in partnership with Lafayette Consolidated Government (LCG) is continuing its ArtBox program with ten new artworks throughout the Evangeline Corridor area. This new beautification campaign came about through the Catalyst Projects Initiative developed and outlined in the Evangeline Corridor Initiative (ECI) Planning Report.

This catalyst project covers multiple districts within the ECI corridor. As a Catalyst Project, these ten ArtBoxes aims at increasing economic and community value within the area. These projects, both small and large, are intended to leverage significant visible investment in the area to support comprehensive community planning goals. This is a great opportunity for collaboration within communities.  Lafayette Consolidated Government and Acadiana Center for the Arts with participation of neighborhood coteries, community residents and community organizations will bring about ten new works of public art that will be distinct and reflective of the history and people of their communities.

Through this campaign, artists and community members are encouraged to submit proposals for artwork to be installed on any of the proposed sites located in the McComb-Veazey, LaPlace, Freetown-Port Rico, Quiet Town and Oasis neighborhoods. Selected designs will be awarded a $500 artist stipend paid upon completion of the final design. 

All submissions will be accepted online through this webpage.
