Brief Description

Using funds provided to the City of West Des Moines through a Metro Waste Authority Environmental Enhancement Grant, the project will consist of eight (8) identified traffic signal boxes on public property in West Des Moines which will be wrapped in vinyl designs. Each artistic design will call viewers’ attention to a specific environmental education topic. Thus, public art will not only enhance what is often seen as visual clutter in a city but will also communicate to the public the ways in which their actions can affect the environmental health of the community. The selected artist/artist team will receive $4,000 to produce eight works of art.
