Design Criteria for Selected Artists
Artists may submit more than one design proposal. A statement for each design must be submitted. Do not bind application materials or put them in a notebook or folder. Do not send any materials not specifically requested (i.e. photographs, transparencies, DVDs/videos, articles). If sent, they will not be reviewed by the selection panel.
The Traffic Box Art Program is designed to enhance the area by adding works of art to the streetscapes on surfaces that are often targeted by graffiti vandals. Artwork on traffic signal boxes function as a form of communication to a moving audience with the goal of creating a safe, inclusive and interesting urban environment. Successful proposals will foster community pride and convey the sense of the Nampa community. When designing your artwork, think of the vitality of The District or neighborhood and its contribution to the city as a whole, such as arts, music, community events, outdoors, history, culture, and special attractions.
The project is open to artists residing in Nampa, Canyon County, Ada County, Boise, and surrounding Treasure Valley area. All eligible applicants, regardless of race, sex, religion, nationality, age, origin or disability, will be considered. If you are unsure about eligibility, contact our office before applying.
