City of Kent Arts Commission
Traffic Signal Control Cabinet Art Wraps
- Budget: Eight artists receive $1,000 inclusive of design, research, travel, and applicable tax
Eligibility: This call is open to professional and emerging visual artists residing in Washington State.
The City of Kent Arts Commission, in partnership with the Kent Police Department and Public Works Department, seeks artists to design artwork to cover traffic signal controller cabinets. The selected artists will create artwork for cabinets in various locations throughout Kent.
This cross departmental partnership is intended to curb graffiti and create a visually dynamic and interesting environment in Kent by incorporating artwork on city traffic controller cabinets. Artwork will be fabricated onto vinyl wraps and installed on eight selected cabinets.
The artists will each create a design based on traffic controller cabinet specifications and locations to be provided. We are looking for artwork that provides color and vibrancy. Designs that are representative of some element(s) of the Kent community are encouraged. Artists will provide fabrication-ready designs; Kent Arts Commission/City of Kent will coordinate and cover the cost of fabrication and installation.
