Westlake Elementary - Graphic Traffic Signal Box Art
This Project is in progress. Stay Tuned for updates on the Completed Traffic Box in front of Moore St & High St.
The City of Santa Cruz’s “Graphic Traffic” program helps reduce graffiti and contributes to the vitality and attractiveness of our community’s streetscapes and brings local art to unexpected places. Westlake Elementary in conjunction with the Arts Commission of Santa Cruz is seeking submissions from artists that are parents or teachers of the school willing to adorn the signal box/electrical box at our schools main traffic intersection of High and Moore Streets operated by the city.
Residents, students, parents and visitors will be able to enjoy a memorialized “Graphic Traffic” edifice dedicated to Richard Bartlett, the schools beloved Crossing Guard. Typically, the City Arts “Graphic Traffic” program issues an annual call for proposals in regards to such a project, however, since the Westlake PTA will be utilizing donations raised from Richard Bartlett’s memorial fund this call is for artist parents and teachers of the Westlake Elementary community.
Funds in the amount of $500 will be given for supplies.
The Call is also open to artists that are parents and teachers of Westlake Elementary to complete this project. All entries must be an original design and artwork of the entrant and must be suitable for viewing by all ages while highlighting the community’s commitment to inclusivity, equity and environmental justice.
