Traffic Signal Boxes

The Arts Commission is leading a public art project to decorate traffic signal boxes. The Commission is seeking designs to be applied onto vinyl wraps. Each wrap is expected to last three years and can then be replaced with a new design. 

Call for Art

Submit your design! 

Residents of Hamilton, Warren and Clermont County, Ohio, are encouraged to apply. No age limit. Open to individual artists - please no organizations and/or artist groups/collaborations. All imagery must be of original design and not a copy or variation of another artist’s design in any medium. Artists may submit up to 3 designs to be considered.

The Arts Commission encourages submissions of Loveland-specific artworks that will make these traffic control boxes purely “Loveland.”

Selected artist designs will be printed onto a vinyl wrap, and applied to the traffic boxes by the City of Loveland in 2023. 

A $1,000 honorarium will be awarded for use of each design. 

Deadline is April 30, 2023

Submit Your Design(s)

Designs that are computer-designed or scanned from illustrations, paintings, quilts, mosaic, photographed sculptures, photographs, or other should be prepared for the selection process as 4” tall by 9” wide JPEG images at 300 dpi.
