Traffic Signal Boxes
For Mary, by Ben Clifford, 2021. This signal box was painted as part of the City of Hobart Traffic Signal Box Program, and then reworked with similar imagery (following tagging), in 2021. Photo credit: City of Hobart
The Traffic Signal Box program utilises existing State-owned infrastructure throughout the city as a canvas for new and emerging artists and community groups.
Each year, an Expression of Interest process is run, with selected participants painting their own artwork design on an allocated signal box.
This is part of a nation-wide program, with finished artworks displayed on the Urban Smart Projects website.
Creative Hobart works with Urban Smart Projects to manage the Traffic Signal Box program.
