More artists are needed to paint Wellesley traffic signal boxes this fall.
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 Traffic Box Art Program.
The program began in late 2020 and is now in its sixth round. The deadline to apply for this round is Friday, September 16 at 4:00 p.m.
Local artists - both amateur and professional - and art and educational institutions are invited to apply. Selected artists will receive a stipend for their time, transportation, and supplies. All painting must be done during the month of October 2022.
Proposals may be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org 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 Fall 2022 Traffic Box Art application.
