Traffic-Signal-BaseThe 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 a 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 along Duke St. in the City of Alexandria. The wraps will cover all four sides and the top of each box. To develop their designs, artists are encouraged to use a variety of media, such as photography, painting, collage, digital imagery, etc. Selected artists will be required to submit their artwork in digital format. The City will be responsible for the printing and installation of the box wraps.
