Vote for artbox design
Tuesday, May 19, 2020 by Tai Moses
By now, everyone knows that “artboxes” are traffic signal cabinets that have been intentionally transformed into works of public art. The city is planning four new artbox installations this spring:
- West Stassney Lane and Menchaca Road (District 5)
- Spicewood Springs Road and Four Iron Drive (District 6)
- Convict Hill Road and Brush Country Road (District 8)
- Far West Boulevard and Wood Hollow Drive (District 10)
Four local artists – Cody Schibi, Christy Stallop, Anna Ganina, and Elizabeth Sullivan – were selected to design the artboxes. Each artist created two design options “that reflect input from nearby residents about the unique character of the local community,” according to an announcement from the Transportation Department. Now comes the fun part: You get to vote on your preferred design. If you live or work near one of the above project sites, visit AustinTexas.gov/artbox, click on the location and cast your vote. The deadline for voting is this Thursday, May 21.
