When we ran this announcement yesterday from the Franklin Cultural District we left off the key web link....Scroll down to find it, this time...

Above, clockwise from the top left, the box at Cottage and Main, East St. and West Central St., Union and West Central, Pleasant and Main,  Main St at Dean, and, Union and Beaver.

Please join us in the Artsy Box Project!

We are excited to announce, Franklin Cultural District is joining in the movement of creating aesthetic utility box art to share with the Franklin community.

Franklin is a vibrant supportive town with lots of historical value. We want to highlight some of its beauty by sharing your interpretation.

Franklin artists of all backgrounds, established or emerging are welcome to submit.

We want to see your best uplifting works of color to fit the locations they will be featured in.

Selected artists would receive a stipend between $500-$1000 dependent on location to cover time, transportation, artistic development and labor. Artwork and assignments will be evaluated by the Franklin Cultural District committee and Department of Planning and Community Development (DPCD) for the Town of Franklin.

Below are the location of the six boxes that are available for painting
