Mini Murals is an award-winning project that reimagines traffic signal control cabinets (also referred to as electrical or utility boxes) as blank canvases brimming with creative opportunity and inviting artistic expression for all to enjoy. Once painted by local and visiting artists, the cabinets, which can be found at intersections with a traffic signal, are intended to help instill civic pride while beautifying neighborhoods and enhancing the urban landscape. Mini Murals is produced by UP Art Studio.
UP Art Studio and Houston Downtown Management District are inviting artists to bring local flair to Main Street.
UP Art Studio has opened a call for artists, inviting local Houston artists to submit their qualifications for the opportunity to create a Mini Mural on a traffic signal control cabinet. The deadline is Sunday, January 26, 2020, 11:59 PM. Applications will be reviewed, and qualifying artists accepted, to create a registry of artists available for this opportunity and future projects managed by UP Art Studio.
