The City of Cedar Hill invites artists to compete for a public art commission to create art on Traffic Signal Boxes (TSBs) located throughout the city. This project will brighten city streetscapes, enhance community pride and create new, paid opportunities for Texas-based artists. The winning artwork will be applied to the TSBs with digitally printed wraps. The City anticipates selecting three winning for this project year. The themes this year are “The Environment” and “Native Birds.”
The deadline for submitting a concept for consideration is 5 p.m. on December 30, 2022. The anticipated timeline is:
December 30, 2022 - Deadline to submit concepts
January 2023 - Winning artists selected
March 2023 - Artists finalize design
April - June 2023 - Installation
Proposals can be playful but must not include images of people. All artwork must be the original work of the artists.
Art should cover all exposed sides and top of the TSB. The fiberglass and concrete bases must also be painted in a solid color or colors complimentary to the design. The undersides of the TSB do not need to be painted.
