2018 Traffic Signal Box Commissions Awarded!
We have very exciting news! Four new Traffic Signal Boxes in Downtown Missoula have officially been commissioned. Artists in Missoula County created and submitted work which was then reviewed by a selection committee made up of City of Missoula Public Art Committee members, neighborhood representatives, the Department of Transportation and other stakeholders.
The City of Missoula Public Art Committee is so excited to have fresh new signal boxes in our downtown area! Our final artists are: Hannah Schultz, M. Scott Miller, Lillian R. Nelson and Karen Slobod. All of their pieces encompass very different qualities, techniques, imagery and concepts. This year, Greg Siple will be re-creating his box, Biking to Missoula, that was removed in years past outside of Worden's Market. Locations of new boxes include Orange & Spruce, Higgins & Pine, Broadway & Orange, Broadway & Higgins and Higgins & Spruce.
Artists will be painting/vinyling their work between September 28th and October 3rd! Say hello and cheer on the artists as they work.
Here are sneak peek images of our four new box models and Greg Siple's, Biking to Missoula, that will be re-vinyled:
