Your Chance to Participate

Have you always wanted to share your art with the UA community?  Here’s your chance.  We currently have three opportunities that will give you a chance to pARTicipate:

Abandoned Art: started by artist Michael deMeng, this project began as a simple sketch on a napkin that was left behind for others to enjoy.   The idea is simple, create a piece of art and leaveit somewhere to be found and enjoyed by another.  The idea has gone global, and the Art Abandonment facebook page has grown to over 30,000 members who share their experiences for others to enjoy.

If you’re interested in participating with UA’s Art Abandonment project, Let us know by emailing and we’ll add you to our list of creative participants



Utility Box Covers: Artists and neighborhoods have been wrapping utility boxes with visual art in an effort to reduce graffiti and beautify the community. Our next Arts in Community Spaces project is placing art clings on utility boxes.  We recently improved a north/south connector in UA, Tremont Road, and are planning to enhance the 10 utility boxes along the road with art.  Invited artists will receive $100 for our use of their work in a cling.  Artists will retain the original work of art created for this endeavor.  Artists will retain the rights to the work created.

If you would like to apply to be part of this project, see the application below.  Applications must be received by April 28, selected artists will be notified in May, and artwork will be installed in July.  Email us at for an application or more information.
