The City of Pompano Beach will wrap digital versions of artworks on traffic signal boxes located throughout the City. The goal of the program is to add an attractive and creative touch along our corridors by transforming a traffic signal box into a piece of art. This is the second round to a project started in 2015. This beautification effort will enhance the experience of all those visiting the corridors and will help to prevent vandalizing of boxes. Site visits are encouraged but not required.
The artwork submitted must be a minimum resolution of 360 DPI. There is no overall theme; however, the artwork should be bright in color, bold, readable from cars yet contain some intimacy for pedestrians. No logos or words are to be used in the design.
This Call is open to all United States professional and amateur artists. Experience in vinyl wraps or public art is NOT necessary. Artists skilled in any arts medium whether it be 2-D, painting, drawing, photography, graphic design, animation, digital, etc.. are encouraged to apply. Designs must be unique and of the artists’ own accord. Artists will give the City reproduction rights to the selected images. Artists should submit up to ten (10) images with a minimum resolution of 360 dpi. The images submitted are the works of art the artist is proposing for the vinyl wraps. The City may select multiple designs from each artist. Selected artists will receive $200 per box.
Once selected, the artist is required to place design(s) onto templates provided by the Vendor/City and to work with the Vendor/City for final approval of placement.
Artists are NOT eligible who are immediate family or business partners of members of the Public Art Committee or program staff.
Artists are to submit up to ten (10) images with a minimum resolution of 360 dpi. These images are the works of art the artist is proposing for the vinyl wraps.
The City will contract with a vinyl wrapping company to install the artwork.
The 45 utility boxes are located at different arterials and neighborhoods throughout the City. The metal utility boxes sit on the ground at intersections. They vary in size, but many are around 5’x2’x4’ feet.
