The City of Boise’s Department of Arts & History invites artists to apply for the opportunity to create or supply artwork for the 2022 Traffic Box Program. Selected artists will be paid $1,000 to create or supply original artwork to be digitized and fabricated into a vinyl wrap. Artists may use original, existing artwork or create new, original artwork which could consist of illustration, painting, digital images, textiles, mosaic, photographs of original artwork, photographs, and more. Templates and measurements of the traffic box will be provided to the selected artists to use as a guide in converting their artwork. Artwork must be properly sized to ensure a high-quality final product file. Artists do not fabricate or install the final art on the boxes. Selected artists will work with a fabricator, providing direction and oversight for the proper printing, proofing, and installation orientation of the artwork. The artist will retain the copyright to the work. The city may select up to six artists or artist teams to implement their design proposal. Selection panelists may give preference to artists that do not have two or more boxes currently in the collection. This call is open to all ages. Local artists are strongly encouraged to apply.
Local artists strongly encouraged to apply. Opportunity open to applicants of all ages with parent or guardian acting as contract representative for applicants under 18 years of age.
