What is the Artistic Traffic Box Wrap Program

Program: gray Traffic Box at an intersection

Lexington is trying to make the community beautiful with a new program. What exactly is this program? How can someone participate?

Lexington has approximately 400 traffic signal boxes. Typically, the signal box is a nondescript gray metal box.

The wrap can cover the entire box or a limited number of sides. Artists must apply and art must be approved by the Urban County Arts Review Board before installation. A permit from KYDOT is required for wraps located along state routes.

The Artistic Traffic Box Wrap program allows citizens and groups to propose artwork that will be turned into a wrap and placed at a specific intersection, adding to Lexington’s public art projects. The proposing individual or group is responsible for funding the wrap and installation.
