Artbox Program

Through the Artbox Program, we strive to honor and celebrate people and cultural histories, and advance equity and safety in Austin. The Artbox Program provides Austin neighborhoods and business districts the opportunity to enhance Austin Transportation’s (ATD) traffic signal (utility) cabinets with community-inspired artwork created by local artists. By enhancing neighborhoods and business districts, encouraging civic pride, and highlighting the unique character of a community, the program enhances a community's beauty, pride, and character for others to see, learn, and enjoy.
