More artists are needed to paint Wellesley traffic signal boxes this spring!

To help make our community even more colorful and enhance the visual experience for Town residents and visitors, the Wellesley Public Art Committee (PAC) is working with the Wellesley Police Department on the Traffic Box Art Program. 

The program began in late 2020 and is now in its third year. The deadline to apply for this round is Friday, April 28, 2023.

Program details, the Spring 2023 application, and design templates are  on the Public Art webpage on the Town website. Applications can be submitted electronically or printed and delivered to the Wellesley Police Department, in care of Chief Jack Pilecki. 

The traffic boxes for this round include standard individual boxes located at:

  • Weston Road at Linden Street
  • Wellesley College / Central Street & Weston Road
  • Crest Road at Linden Street

A pair of oversized traffic boxes are also offered for this round. These are located at Hunnewell Field near the Tot Lot on Washington Street. 

Local artists, both amateur and professional, and art and educational institutions are invited to apply. Selected artists will receive a stipend for their time, transportation, and supplies. Painting must be done during the months of June and July 2023.  

Use this interactive map for a virtual tour of the completed traffic boxes in Wellesley, photos and locations, and artist and sponsor information.
