The Downtown Management District is continuing their Electrical Box Mural Program and the deadline for applications ends today, July 12th, at 5 pm!

This event began back in 2015 as a way to beautify the downtown area of Corpus Christi. Previous participants have created gorgeous murals, ranging from brilliantly colored aquatic life to abstract animals and geometric patterns. They hope to continue this program and have already pre-selected the next electrical boxes that will be this year’s canvases along Mesquite Street.

Six artists will be picked from the applicants through public voting and announced at 5 pm on June 20th. Each artist will be compensated for their work and provided the paints needed for the murals by DMD from Novo Color. Each electrical box will be sanded and primed before painting, then sealed once the art is finished, also provided by DMD.

Make sure you apply today and include a portfolio of rendered work that reflects the Corpus Christi culture!

Application papers can be found at, and should be emailed to Jordan Michael:
