Utility Box Art Watch Utility Box Project artists paint their unique designs on select traffic signal boxes, now through the end of May. Boxes selected for this year’s project include five along Dublin Boulevard between Hacienda Drive and Glynnis Rose Drive, and three along Amador Valley Boulevard between Brighton Drive and Stagecoach Drive. A ninth box, across from The Wave on Central Parkway, was added to this year's schedule. This year’s theme is the “The New American Backyard,” with artwork depicting popular Dublin pastimes, such as kite flying at Emerald Glen Park, and native wildlife seen in the New American Backyard.
Email staff for a schedule of when the artists will painting at specific locations.
Arts Space Grants
The City of Dublin partners with the arts community in making Arts Space Grants available to allow arts organizations and artists limited, rent-free use of certain City facilities, for the purpose of offering unique high-quality arts programming for the public. Arts Space Grants are intended to foster the arts in Dublin, making a wide variety of arts programs available to Dublin residents.
Arts organizations and artists may download an application here to request free use of City of Dublin-owned facilities. Applications are reviewed by Staff each month on the first day of the month.
Dublin Camp Parks Military History Center
The City of Dublin partnered with Camp Parks Reserve Forces Training Area and museum exhibit design specialists to develop the new Dublin Camp Parks Military History Center at the Camp Parks Visitor Center. Exhibits show how Camp Parks helped transformed Dublin from its rural roots to the City it is today, and how the people who lived and served here were personally transformed. The Dublin Camp Parks Military History Center opened in May 2017.
Heritage and Cultural Arts programs offer many opportunities for you to get involved, from voicing your opinions at Heritage and Cultural Arts Commission meetings to volunteering at special events and museums. Artists and arts organizations based in Dublin or providing services here are encouraged to submit information for our Cultural Arts Resources database. Staff uses the database to provide information about local cultural arts resources to the public and to notify artists and organizations as creative opportunities arise.
