Lodi turning traffic control boxes into public artwork

The CIty of Lodi is looking to transform five traffic control boxes from bland metal boxes into canvases for public art.

The boxes measure 4 feet, 7 inches high; 2 feet, 2 inches deep and 3 feet, 2 inches wide. They are located at Mills and Turner roads, Lower Sacramento Road and Lodi Avenue, Pine Street and Cherokee Lane, Hale Road and Cherokee Lane, and Harney Lane and Reynolds Ranch Road.

Arts must submit a design that shows all sides of the utility box and provide a written explanation of the proposal. Artists selected for the project will be paid $100 for each cabinet. Applications are due March 26.

The project is open to all practicing, professional and emerging arts and design teams residing in Lodi. The Call for Artists, which includes additional information about the project, may be downloaded here.

The Traffic Control Box project is paid with impact mitigation fees paid by developers into the City's Art in Public Places Fund.
