Orange County Board of County Commissioners’ (BCC) approved Neighborhood Preservation & Revitalization Division (NPRD) staff to initiate the St.art Something Traffic Signal Cabinet Art Program on September 9, 2014.
St.art Something provides an opportunity for both organizations and artists to create a sense of place and strengthen community identity by placing art on Orange County maintained traffic signal cabinets.
Since the program was first established, the BCC received requests from citizens interested in expanding the program. Due to the high interest in the program it will now be a County wide program. With the assistance of Public Works, NPRD has recognized over 600 cabinets in 33 community areas. NPRD and Arts and Cultural Affairs Division will work with citizens in each area to come up with a design committee for their community area. The design committee will consist of 3 to 5 citizens from neighborhood and civic organizations, nonprofits, and businesses.
I, as the local artist, would be assigned a box(es) to paint or wrap in order to reflect the community accordingly and assist in the program itself.
