Call to artists open for traffic signal box program
The Great Falls Business Improvement District, in partnership with the
Downtown Development Partnership, is continuing its traffic signal box program for local artists interested in design of public art on selected traffic signal boxes.
The program began in 2011 and is part of an effort to continue beautification in Downtown Great Falls, according to a release.
“The TSB Art Project enhances the pedestrian and driving experience by incorporating artwork directly into the streetscape,” according to the BID release.
All of the traffic signal box in Great Falls has been done by local artists, according to the BID.
This summer, the BID and DDP will complete one traffic signal box at the intersection of 1st Avenue North and 9th Street North.
The project is open to artists who live in Cascade County. Emerging artists are encouraged to apply.
The Call to Artists proposal form includes the specific requirements and can be picked up at the BID office at 318 Central Ave. or find it here.
The submission deadline for artists to be considered for the project is 13:30 p.m. July 12.
The project is supported by the Downtown Development Partnership, the City of Great Falls, the Montana Department of Transportation and the Clean Slate Group.
