Bring civic art to Austin streets! The Artbox Program provides Austin neighborhoods the opportunity to enhance Austin Transportation’s traffic signal (utility) cabinets with community-inspired artwork created by local artists. A neighborhood can express its special character for others to see, learn and enjoy. By working with the community and local artists, the Artbox Program offers something for everyone.
