“It's an opportunity to have some fun, creative work of art in places people don't normally pay attention to,” Barbara Hanna, the city's communications and marketing director, said Friday.
The wraps are intended to tell the history of the Dungeness Valley's people, places and culture.
The tribe's wrap was designed by totem designer Dale Faustich.
Sponsorship of the wraps costs $1,500, with $500 going to the artist and the remainder for the vinyl printing and installation.
Hanna said the city is sponsoring a second wrap designed by artist Katelin Ghormley that will go on the utility box at Third Avenue and West Washington Street.
The city planned for four art installations and is seeking sponsors.
Those interested should contact Hanna at City Hall, 152 W. Cedar St., by phone at 360-681-4322 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
