Transforming Traffic Signal Boxes into Public Art 
September 6, 2019 - Deadline for applications

Typical traffic signal equipment box to provide a "canvas" for public art

"Outside the Box" is a call to artists of diverse media to transform ordinary traffic signal boxes into three-dimensional artworks. Palm Beach County Art in Public Places will commission up to 36 student, emerging, and professional artists based in Palm Beach County to create art inspired by contemporary and historical attributes of Palm Beach County's Lake Region. The Lake Region includes the cities and unincorporated areas surrounding Belle Glade, Pahokee and South Bay. It is a unique opportunity for artists to exhibit art outdoors in the public realm when graphic images are digitally translated onto vinyl and applied to public infrastructure to enhance streetscapes.
