News & Updates 
2017 Traffic Signal Box Dedication

2017's Traffic Signal Boxes are completed! Rachel Neal, Ann Karp, & Melissa Madsen did a wonderful job completing their pieces. The boxes look incredible and add so much life to the street corners they are perched on.  [Left Image: Melissa Madsen, Swinging on the Tree of Life - Re-Painted.]

Friday, September 1st, was the First Friday Traffic Signal Box Dedication at the Dana Gallery. The night was such a success! Public Art Committee members were present and the artists gave a brief talk on their boxes and artistic visions. We would like to thank everyone who came out to the dedication. It is encouraging to see our community supporting the public arts. Public Art endeavors such as the Traffic Signal Box project would not be possible without an engaged audience! Please take a walk, or drive by North & Russel, South & Garfield, and Brooks & Miller Creek to view the new boxes if you haven't already. [Below Images Left to Right: Rachel Neal, Missoula Montage.

We are already looking forward to next year's submissions. Follow us on FACEBOOK and INSTAGRAM for more images and updates on all things Missoula Public Art!
