Wanted: More artists to transform Wellesley traffic signal boxes into public art!

To help make our community even more colorful and enhance the visual experience for Town residents and visitors, the Wellesley Public Art Committee (PAC) is working with the Wellesley Police Department on the Electrical Box Art Program. 

The spring 2022 application period for the Electrical Box Art Program is now open.

The program began in late 2020 and is now in its fifth round. Local artists - both amateur and professional - and art and educational institutions are invited to apply to paint boxes this spring. 

The specific locations under consideration for this round of the program are: 

  • Central Park - Central Street & Grove Street 
  • Cedar Street at River Road and Walnut Street
  • Route 9 East Exit Ramp at Cedar Street 
  • Linden Street at Everett Street (2 boxes, additional compensation for this location TBD)*

*This location includes more than one box with varying size dimensions. Please make sure to choose the correct design template; visiting the locations in advance is encouraged. 

Selected artists will receive a stipend for their time, transportation, and supplies. Painting must be done between May 2, 2022 and June 30, 2022. 

All proposals must be received by Friday, April 15 at 4:00 p.m. to be considered. Proposals may be emailed to or delivered as hardcopies to the Wellesley Police Department, in care of Chief Jack Pilecki.

Program details, eligibility criteria, and comprehensive proposal information are in the Spring 2022 Traffic Box Art application
