The Discovering Windsor Through Art application period was January 12-March 1, 2021. The Town received ten applications from qualified artists. After a competitive ranking process, seven gifted artists have been selected to paint designated utility boxes. The Public Art Advisory Commission served as judges and ranked the applications based on use of color, overall design, design originality, and consistency with theme. The Town Council officially approved the artwork at their regular meeting on April 7, 2021.  

The Town is grateful to all of the artists who submitted an application. The need for community healing right now is great, and the more community support for this process, the better. In addition to the participating artists, the Town would like to thank our program sponsor Kelly Moore Paints in Windsor for donating the high-quality paint to be used on these boxes.

This is a new annual program for the Town and the 2022 applications will be released in January.
