Deadline extended to June 8, 2018

The McComb-Veazey Neighborhood is thrilled to announce that it is kicking off the second phase of Acadiana Center for the Arts (AcA) and Lafayette Consolidated Government (LCG) ArtBox Project. The goal of the ArtBox Project is to transform the traffic boxes around Lafayette into beautiful pieces of public art that represent our city, its people, and our culture, giving our community a sense of place. Two ordinary utility boxes will be transformed into works of art in the McComb-Veazey area, with themes chosen to reflect the area.

The theme of the first box is the Creole Food, Arts, Culture, and Entertainment (FACE) District, it will be celebrating the many faces of our Creole and African American history. We are looking for submissions that capture the amazing things that make up our unique Creole and African-American History in our community. We are hoping for submissions from a wide range of artist of all ages with different points of view, styles, and inspiration.

Artists can produce the artwork in a format of their choosing. It is then scanned onto a vinyl wrap that’s made from a very thick, graffiti/weather resistant material.

Professional, amateur, and student artists are invited to apply for the program.



Applications and detailed information are under the "Community Projects" section of website and on the organization’s Facebook page. In addition to the application, artists should attach a proposal describing their vision.

Artists whose designs are chosen will receive a $500 stipend.

The location and theme of the second box will be announced in the coming weeks.

Applicants must drop off completed applications at AcA's front desk during AcA's hours of operation (Monday–Saturday 10am–5pm).
