A call is being put out to local student artists for a signal box design contest.
The City of Spokane in partnership with Spokane Arts is seeking designs to cover traffic signal coxes along Main Street downtown. The intent of the project is to beautify the downtown space and reduce graffiti by bringing art to otherwise bland and utilitarian surfaces.
Artist designs will be selected and installed from Division St. to Maple St. along 2nd Avenue downtown. Up to nine designs will be chosen contingent upon secured funding for the project. Selected artist designs will be printed on vinyl and wrapped around the signal boxes by a third party design fabricator.
