Public Art Project: Traffic Signal Boxes

The Arts Commission is leading a new public art project to decorate traffic signal boxes. Each vinyl wrap is expected to last three years and can then be replaced with a new design. 

In 2023, the Commission will solicit designs from artists to wrap other traffic signal boxes in the community.
