The City of Alexandria Office of the Arts invites artists and artist teams residing in Virginia, Maryland, District of Columbia, West Virginia, Kentucky, North Carolina and Tennessee to submit their qualifications for this year’s Traffic Control Box Vinyl Wrap Public Art Project.

Up to three artists or artist teams will be selected to design wraps for 12 traffic control boxes located at intersections in the West End of the City of Alexandria. The wraps will cover all four sides and the top of each box.  Artists are encouraged to use a variety of media, such as photography, painting, collage, digital imagery, etc. to develop their designs. Selected artists will be required to submit their final designs at full-scale in a digital format such as Illustrator, Photoshop, InDesign or a combination of the three. The City will be responsible for the printing and installation of the box wraps.

The unveiling of the traffic control box wraps will coincide with National Public Works Week beginning on Sunday, May 15, 2016.
