Traffic Graffics Utility Box Project

The Federal Way Traffic Graffics project is one of the projects the Arts Commission is most proud of as it brings added vibrancy to our city while community members travel through town.  These metal boxes are found throughout our city and are often tagged or vandalized.  This project has been shown to help discourage tagging and provides public art and fun to our city.  They are one way to use art to strengthen Federal Way’s identity and sense of community.  These boxes are an innovative way to have public art in public spaces right where people can see it, not hidden away in a gallery. 

Currently the commission is not seeking submissions for new box designs, but if you have something compelling you would like to submit, please complete this application for consideration for the future.  Please note:   Utility boxes come in different shapes and sizes, therefore you may be asked to re-configure your work to fit the shape of the box.  Future call to artists for this project will have dimensions and specs to suit the particular call for submission.
