Duncanville, TX - On July 31, the City of Duncanville unveiled two more traffic signal boxes emblazoned with artwork that was solicited from the community.
Wrapped in artwork designed by local artists Tim and Anne Perry, the traffic signal boxes are located on Wheatland Road, one at Freeman and the other at Main. The signal boxes unveiled on Wednesday are the third and fourth boxes to be completed. The first two were unveiled in June and are located in the Downtown District on Main Street.
The project was supported by the Duncanville Design Studio and City of Duncanville. Artists submitted proposals based on community-centric themes and final designs were selected by City Council.
“The 2017 Comprehensive Plan put forth the initiative to make art a larger part of our community, and from that plan the Traffic Signal Box Art Contest was born,” said Mayor Barry Gordon. “Local artists have done an excellent job celebrating our community through various themes, and these two boxes feature art honoring Duncanville’s inclusive community and our history.”
