DESIGN TEMPLATE SAMPLE
The utility box template converts a three-dimensional object to a one-dimension drawing layout. This template enables artists to scale conceptual art designs within a dimensional space. Actual utility boxes vary in size (approximately 72” H x 38” W x 35” D), shape, and have various vents, seams, doors, and handles. Be prepared to adjust artwork to fit a unique utility box.

Hayward Police Department Seeks Mural Artist for HAYWARD ATTENDANCE PROJECT
PROJECT: Cesar Chavez Middle School
The goal of the Hayward Attendance Project (HAP) is to develop a plan to reduce chronic absenteeism in the Tennyson High School pattern of schools within the Hayward unified School District. We are seeking a mural which promotes the importance of school attendance coupled with the unique/diversified Hayward community as a backdrop. Consistent school attendance beginning when a child first enters school has a direct impact on whether that student will complete high school or become involved in the juvenile justice system.

COMPLETION DATE: FEBRUARY 2017 (weather permitting)
FUNDING: $13,000 all projects require anti-graffiti coating up to two applications
