The Decatur Box Project

Artists Paint Traffic Signal Boxes

The Decatur Arts Alliance worked with Decatur resident/artist Larry Holland of Fishbone Art to begin a new public art initiative: the Decatur Box Project. A variety of artists were commissioned to paint traffic signal boxes, transforming them into colorful, whimsical works of art. Each selected artist painted only one box, so there are dozens of unique artworks around. Take a walk and see for yourself.

In order to make information about the Decatur Box Project artists more accessible, we have created an interactive map giving details on the artists, their backgrounds, and their inspirations for the designs they have created. You can find the map on the Fishbone Art website.
