Margate is Calling All Artists

(Click on the title for full details) Margate is calling all artists!

The Margate Community Redevelopment Agency (MCRA) is seeking qualified artists to transform Margate’s utility boxes into vibrant works of art.  Utility boxes, which sit on street corners and sidewalks, holding all the valuable equipment that keeps the City clicking along, provide a wonderful mechanism for public art. The call to artist’s application was officially launched on May 17, 2017. The MCRA is inviting all realms of artists to apply for this opportunity to display their creative talent while enhancing Margate’s branding and identity.

“We would like to transform the City’s visually unappealing utility boxes with a little artistic affection.  This public art project is a step towards achieving our goal to bring public art into the City of Margate,” states Commissioner Joanne Simone.

In June 2014, the City of Margate adopted a new logo and tagline, “Together We Make it Great” which conjures up images of family and a business friendly environment. Whether it is the City’s miles of waterways, green spaces, or people of the community, Margate has a vast array of inspirations for artists.

Our Call to Artist application process will last a duration of 30 days, beginning May 17, 2017 and will conclude on June 17, 2017.  All submissions must be made through the Call to Artists website, “CaFE”.
