Allied Arts Council now accepting applications for the next Downtown St. Joseph Traffic Box Project.

ST. JOSEPH, MO- The Allied Arts Council and the City of St. Joseph invite artists to apply for the seventh traffic box project in Downtown St. Joseph.

The goal of Allied Arts Council’s Traffic Box Project is to create and paint art on traffic signal boxes in the Downtown area and turn street corners into pieces of art. The traffic box is located on the corner of 9th and Francis Street and is set to complete this fall.

When designing artwork, artists should think of the vitality of the Downtown District and its contribution to the city as a whole, such as arts, music, community events and special attractions. The traffic box project is an opportunity to enliven the Downtown scene and give artists the chance to be recognized.

Artists need to send in a resume, references, a template for each submitted design (if more than one), and an artist statement for each design, postmarked by September 6 to the Allied Arts Council office. The selected artist will receive an honorarium of $1,500.The deadline for Submission is September 6, 2019. 

The traffic box project launched in 2012. The average life of the Traffic Box Art is 10 years.
