In 2015, the highly successful Utility Box Program began using an artist roster selection process wherein communities who have successfully applied to have a utility box painted are able to choose an artist who best fits their needs from the pre-approved list to paint the utility box. This helps support the artists by offering new opportunities and higher visibility within Calgary.
2015's artist roster was chosen by a standard selection panel composed of three artists, three community representatives and one representative from the Roads business unit.
The artists chosen for 2015 are:
Derek Michael Besant
Jason Scott Johnson & Nicola Yssel Johnson
Raghavendra Rao K.V.
