Brief Description

Palm Beach County Art in Public Places will commission up to twenty-three (23) student, emerging, and professional artists who reside in Palm Beach County, to transform ordinary traffic signal boxes (TSBs) into three-dimensional artworks. Selected artworks will be installed on Florida Department of Transportation TSBs. Located in municipal and unincorporated Belle Glade, Pahokee and South Bay, TSBs are ideal “canvases” to enhance streetscapes, humanize the built environment, and foster a unique sense of place for residents and visitors to the Lake Region. Artists are invited to create original art, in diverse media, inspired by contemporary and historical attributes of the Lake Region’s natural and human-made environments, communities, recreational activities, education, arts, culture, industry and more. Artists interested in taking the leap from studio art to public art, and those who create site-specific works, are encouraged to apply.
