StreetArt Outside the Box Program

The Outside the Box program provides an opportunity for local artists to create works of art on traffic signal boxes across Toronto and contribute to the vitality and attractiveness of the streetscape. Since 2013, over 185 boxes have been hand-painted by local artists and transformed into extraordinary works of art.

The Outside the Box project is designed to enhance the streetscape by creating artwork on surfaces that are often targeted by vandalism. Artwork on traffic signal boxes functions as a form of communication to an audience in transit throughout the city with the goal of creating a vibrant, inclusive, and interesting urban environment. Successful proposals must therefore be innovative in design, foster community pride, strive to counteract graffiti vandalism, and contribute to a sense of identity for residents and businesses. When designing the artwork, artists are encouraged to consider the context of the local area and the city as a whole.

Deadline: April 24, 2017 at 4:30pm.
