Announcing the boxART! Program
boxART! is the City of Fremont’s program which provides for the painting of colorful murals on the nearly 170 utility boxes located at each signaled intersection throughout Fremont. The program is much appreciated by residents and visitors, and the city has recently announced Phase 3 of the program. Artists whose work is chosen and completed will receive a $650 stipend.
Flash Fiction Contest
The 2019 Flash Fiction Contest was held in October 2019 with the theme: An alternative history of Fremont. The event was co-sponsored and took place at Half Price Books at the Fremont Hub.
We are in the planning stages for the 2021 event in the fall. Stay tuned for updates!
All Arts Summit & Youth Interns
The biennial Summit was most recently held November 2020. Representatives from Fremont’s arts organizations as well as several local artists attended a virtual networking event hosted and facilitated by the FCAC. Organized and produced by the FCAC interns, the approximately 40 attendees shared ideas on a variety of topics. During break-out discussions, attendees worked to problem-solve issues faced by their organizations, including managing during the pandemic.
FCAC’s interns are available to non-profit arts organizations to assist as volunteers. Learn more about participating in a future Summit or the Youth Internship Program.
Las Posadas, a holiday tradition, has been produced by the FCAC and sponsored by the Old Mission San Jose in Fremont annually since 1982. Join us as we celebrate the advent season and more than 30 years of this tradition with performances by local musical artists for 9 nights beginning December 15.
