The city of Hamilton is calling for local artists to design wraps for an influx of new traffic signal cabinets to be installed in the coming years.
Building on the success of similar projects from the past, the city is encouraging interested artists to submit their proposals for the up to 200 new traffic cabinets. Artwork can be created in any medium, provided it can be produced digitally for large-format printing. Artists of all experience levels are welcome to participate
Following submissions, a volunteer jury of citizens and local artists will select up to 40 pieces of artwork for installation. The chosen artists will receive $700 for their final digital files, along with an agreement to allow the city to reproduce and use the design up to five times. Any artwork added to the cabinets will be considered temporary, with a maximum life span of 10 years.
Anyone who is interested in submitting a proposal is invited to a virtual information meeting on Tuesday, Dec. 13 at 7 p.m. While it is not mandatory to attend, the meeting will cover the adjudication process and submission requirements.
The city will accept digital proposals until Friday, Jan. 20 at 4 p.m.
