Delano is a small town full of artistic talent. The Art Council was started to help promote local artists and to make art easily accessible to the community. This project will recognize our local artists, who are accomplished in their chosen art genre.
The many utility boxes around town are blank canvases that beg to host art. A local professional graphic artist will be creating vinyl sleeves with photos of the works of fellow artists.
Use of the electrical boxes as a “canvas” for art will create value in a few ways: (1) many area residents will experience art they might not otherwise see; (2) the artists will have their work seen by the broader community; and (3) the downtown area will be more aesthetically pleasing.
This project will also enhance our community goal of creating downtown Delano as a
destination for the arts.
