The City of Campbell’s Civic Improvement Commission has recently announced its new “Art Outside the Box” utility box art program. Modeled after San Jose’s program, this unique street art program allows artists to showcase their artwork on City-owned traffic control utility boxes located throughout Campbell.

The program will be funded through sponsorships and individual donations. Individuals, families, neighborhood groups, businesses, and local civic and other non-profit organizations are welcome and encouraged to sponsor the painting of artwork on a utility box. An online donor site has been established for donations and sponsorships.

The City is currently seeking local artists interested in displaying their art by painting up to ten utility boxes scattered throughout Campbell. Interested artists are asked to fill out an application, located on the City’s website. Application deadline is April 3, 2015 at 5pm.

Information on artist eligibility, guidelines, utility box locations, and sponsorships may also be found here. For questions, contact Oscar Murillo at [email protected] or 408-871-5304.

- You may drag the tree on an upside down bathmat rather than carry the tree to minimize needles dropping on your floors.

- On the tree's location : put down an old folded sheet or blanket first to protect the floor. Then put plastic (such as a cheap plastic tablecloth) over the old sheet/blanket to protect from water damage. Finally, put the Christmas tree stand on top of the plastic.
