Traffic Box Art Contest

The Orange Blossom Trail Development Board (OBTDB) invites local artists to submit proposals for the Traffic Control Box Art Contest.  This public art initiative gives local artists a unique opportunity to showcase their talents while enhancing the aesthetics of our community.  Artists may submit an entry for consideration to have their original art applied to one of several traffic control boxes along the OBT corridor. All entries must incorporate the theme of “OBT and Me”. The artwork will be displayed on traffic box wraps throughout the OBT Next boundary (Sections of South U.S. 441 to Oak Ridge Road)


DEADLINE: Sunday, October 1, 2023, 11:59 pm


 Staff will be available to answer questions until Thursday, September 29 @ 5:00 pm.
