What future designs would you like to see included on utility boxes as part of boxART!?
In summer 2014, the City of Fremont Art Review Board selected submissions from the first boxART! Call to Artists to paint 14 of the City’s 165 traffic signal control boxes. Traffic signal control boxes, typically painted gray or olive green, are placed on or near street corners where there are traffic signals, and are visible to both pedestrian and vehicular traffic. Since then, eight of these boxes have been colorfully transformed to become wonderful street murals. More will follow as we recently kicked off Phase 2 of the program. Themes for boxART! include sustainability, green energy, community, education, technology, innovation, ecology, arts, humor, and human relations.
Vibrant public art helps deter unsightly vandalism and creates inviting spaces for residents and visitors alike. The location of these traffic signal control boxes were selected based on their visibility and their susceptibility to graffiti.
The City is looking to the public for design ideas for future phases.
