Outside the Box (Traffic Box Mural Project)


Call for Entries

The Thornton Arts, Sciences and Humanities Council (TASHCO) seeks to commission multiple artists/teams to aesthetically transform traffic utility boxes from functional infrastructure into colorful and inspired works of art by painting them.  Community members, the TASHCO board and select City staff will select up to six artists and/or artist teams to paint traffic cabinet boxes in six different locations in the City of Thornton. The Outside the Box project will be unveiled in the summer of 2017 and will showcase the work of our talented local artists as this public art becomes part of our streetscapes eventually creating a drive by art exhibit within the City.
