The City of Sugar Land Traffic Box Public Art Project
Have you seen any of the newly wrapped traffic boxes along Hwy 90?
The City of Sugar Land Cultural Arts division in partnership with the Public Works department and the Sugar Land Cultural Arts Foundation have “wrapped” thirteen boxes located along Hwy 90 between Interstate Hwy 59 and Hwy 6. The City sought regionally-based artists to transform traffic signal control boxes in Sugar Land from functional infrastructure into colorful inspired works of art. The selected artists comprise a diverse cross-section of the local and regional community, and range in age from 18-years-old to adults.
Temporary public art projects, such as the traffic box project, are one of the categories of projects determined to be most meaningful to the City and a priority for the Public Art Program’s resources.
Some of our favorites are:
Heather Pizzitola: Sweet Things of Sugar Land
Anita Nelson: Sugar Gator
Debra Jan Hall Heintschel: Sugar Land Train
