Mayor heads traffic box art initiative, seeks artists and graphic designers

 

“OUTSIDE THE BOX”

Mayor Boughton is asking local artists and graphic designers to submit draft proposals for consideration in the City’s Traffic Box Art Program. A selection committee will choose one or more artists to design art that will be printed on vinyl wrapping and placed on traffic boxes throughout the city center.

“Downtown represents the vibrancy of the Danbury community, and by partnering with our residents and businesses for this project, we hope to capture that vibrancy in a new, unique, and artistic way,” said Mayor Boughton. “We are putting out a call to artists so that the local community, people who live in and know Danbury, can team up with the City and bring this special public art project to life in downtown Danbury.”

The submission process will be open until January 8, 2018.  Artists are asked to submit portfolios and sketches for consideration. Selected artists will then be assigned one or more traffic box locations throughout downtown Danbury. Once artwork design has been finalized, artists have until February 19, 2018 to provide final print-ready designs for spring installation.

If a business or organization would like to sponsor a traffic box, please contact Taylor O’Brien in the Mayor’s Office, 203-797-4511.
