Traffic Box Art Program

If you are an artist and interested in participating in our Traffic Box Program please contact us for more information.  

In partnership with the City of St. John’s, the Clean St. John’s Traffic Box Art Program hires local artists to paint murals on newly installed or replaced traffic control boxes found at intersections throughout the city. The boxes provide a desirable canvas for public art because they are highly visible to both pedestrians and road traffic. Each year citizens and visitors are exposed to the creative work of local artists enhancing civic pride and beautification. Through honorariums and exposure, the program helps support our cultural economy. Artists have positive experiences of painting outdoors while receiving positive feedback from passersby. The artwork has also been successful at reducing unwanted graffiti and tagging on the traffic boxes. This has become a very popular program with artists and the public alike.
