Moscow Vinyl Wrap Design Submission Opens – Lewis-Clark Valley Community

City of Moscow

MOSCOW- The City of Moscow and the Moscow Arts Commission have announced the submission period for designs to be installed on vinyl-wrapped sign boxes, with artist materials accepted until February 28.

Artworks displayed on vinyl-wrapped boxes have been part of the City of Moscow’s temporary public art collection since 2012. The project provides public spaces for artists to share two-dimensional works and embellishes street installations throughout the community.

The city of Moscow has identified three new boxes to be wrapped in vinyl. In addition, vinyl will be replaced on the standard five-year rotation schedule at two existing sites. Boxes scheduled for vinyl installation in 2022 are at Styner & Hwy 95, Mountain View & Hwy 8, Jackson & College, 6th & Alley (between Jackson & Main) and Jackson & A St.

The pieces chosen by the selection jury will be exhibited for a period of up to five years. Selected artists will each receive an honorarium of $600.

Artists 18 or older who live in Latah, Nez Perce, Asotin, or Whitman counties, as well as members of the Nez Perce or Coeur d’Alene tribe are welcome to participate. Submissions are inclusive for all artists.

Public art is central to Moscow’s creative culture, and with a collection including works by local and regional artists, its public spaces reflect the Inner Northwest’s tradition of artistic excellence.

Artwork ranges from sculptures and murals to framed pieces from the city’s portable collection. Temporary artwork includes vinyl-wrapped utility boxes and bus shelters as well as sculptures at the Intermodal Transit Center on the University of Idaho campus.

The acquisition of public art by the city of Moscow began in the 1980s and is supported by a 1% fund for the arts created by ordinance in 2004. A public art master plan guides the Moscow Arts Commission , arts staff and community members as they integrate new fits into the city landscape.
