Out of the Box Art Program
The City is pleased to continue with the Mount Pearl Traffic Box Program, which transforms traffic boxes into works of art and reduces unwanted graffiti. The City encourages artists and art classes to submit sketches of the art they wish to display on the boxes. A judging panel will then decide on acceptable work and match the artist with a traffic box and location. Material costs and honorarium will be provided by the City. This program is in partnership with the Association for the Arts in Mount Pearl. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
