More Public Art Decorating Downtown Great Falls

Posted: Updated:

The Great Falls Business Improvement District began makeovers on the traffic signal boxes within their district back in 2011.  Since then they've completed a dozen boxes.  Today they are starting phase 3 with the installation of vinyl art images on 7 traffic signal boxes along 1st Avenue North.

This is the first year every box is being done in vinyl.  Vinyl lasts a long time and should the art be tagged, graffiti is easily removed.  Although. since they started the project graffiti tagging has been less of a problem.  Joan Redeen with the BID explains, "usually they will respect other artists' work and therefore they won't deface it in any way".

Next year the BID plans on finishing up the traffic signal box project by painting the last 2 on 2nd Avenue South, that will complete a total of 21 box makeovers.
