Bring civic art to Austin streets! The Artbox Program provides Austin neighborhoods the opportunity to enhance Austin Transportation’s traffic signal (utility) cabinets with community-inspired artwork created by local artists. A neighborhood can express its special character for others to see, learn and enjoy. By working with the community and local artists, the Artbox Program offers something for everyone.
Austin Transportation contracted with UP Art Studio to help make possible the four following artboxes. Learn more at minimurals.org/austin. Check out the following links for more photos of the installations.
Austin Transportation Department is launching the next phase of its Artbox program. The next two installations will be at:
East Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and Chicon Street (District 1)
South Pleasant Valley Drive and South Lakeshore Boulevard (District 3)
A community input process is currently open in which people in the areas surrounding these intersections can vote on the local Austin artist whose work best represents their community identity. Communities near these installations can request more information by emailing email@example.com or calling 512-974-7902.
