The Town of Flower Mound invites artists to compete for the chance to display an original design on a traffic signal box within the Town. The traffic boxes that will be wrapped are located throughout Flower Mound, enhancing and beautifying the Town’s landscape. This project also provides an opportunity for local artists to display their work in a public space.
This year, the Town will select three artist proposals to cover three designated traffic signal boxes. This will be an annual contest in which 3 new proposals will be chosen each year, for a total of 20 wrapped boxes when it is complete.
The Town will accept proposals based on two themes, “The Flowers of Flower Mound” and “Celebrating Cultural Diversity.” Artist proposals for the “Flowers of Flower Mound” theme can include any type of flower, with all ranges of styles are welcome. Proposals for “Celebrating Cultural Diversity” can include images of cultural specific celebrations or other significant imagery that reflects the unique beauty of cultures represented in Flower Mound.
Artists should submit a digital design that can be converted to a digitally-printed wrap. Only digital submissions will be accepted. The winners will have their names engraved on a plaque that will hang in the Flower Mound Public Library, receive a certificate, in addition to being featured on the Town's social media channels and in local newspapers.
The chosen artwork will be displayed on the traffic signal box for a period of at least two years. When the wrap needs to be replaced, new artwork will be chosen.
