Alameda Municipal Power is coordinating a project to beautify downtown utility cabinets with community-submitted artwork.

Artists who live or work within Alameda are invited to submit art proposals for a number of electrical transformer cabinets along Park Street.

The locally-owned utility is working on the effort with the Park Street Business Association and Rhythmix Cultural Works.

Submissions should reflect “the way the community can reduce its carbon footprint through renewable power sources, cleaner transportation, recycling and reuse, shopping “Alameda” local, supporting local farmers, and water and energy conservation,” officials said.

A panel of judges will pick 10 designs from the submissions; the art work will be transferred to vinyl film and then applied to the utility cabinets.

Selected artists, including one K-12 student, will receive a $500 honorarium, and their work will be featured in a show at the Rhythmix-K Gallery.
