‘Spark the Power of Art’ is a project to provide recognition of local artists, beautifying utility boxes and establishing public art in Delano.
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.
Delano Area Council for Arts and Culture received a FY19 Public Art Grant Rnd2 from the Central MN Arts Board to support the project.
