Vinyl Art Wraps

Beautify Beaverton Project!

The City of Beaverton invites artists to submit images for the 2017 Beautify Beaverton project. The selected artwork will enhance Beaverton’s existing infrastructure by transforming utility and traffic signal boxes into artistic features throughout the city.

In partnership with Clean Slate Group, the Beaverton Arts Program is wrapping unsightly utility boxes in high-performance and graffiti-resistant vinyl printed with local, original artwork. Artists will have an opportunity to see their original work displayed publicly. To view examples of wraps from other cities, visit:

Creator Container Project

More than 40 city-owned trash receptacles have received a makeover. The Creator Container Project, a part of the Beaverton Arts Program’s Art in Public Spaces initiative, aims to add an artistic element to the city’s existing infrastructure while supporting both established and emerging artists.

Pacific Northwest artists were invited to submit their artwork for display. 184 artist submissions were received for consideration on a total of 44 trash receptacles. Selected designs represent artwork by area students, as well as amateur and professional artists from throughout the region. The submitted artwork was transferred to a vinyl wrap for easy application by The Clean Slate Group, a city beautification firm. The vinyl wraps are durable and weather-resistant, and brilliantly showcase each container’s unique design. The city is excited to install work that conveys Beaverton’s identity as well as the community value of celebrating the creative spirit by incorporating art in unexpected locations.
