Traffic Signal Cabinet Art Project

The city of Goodyear is seeking West Valley artists to aesthetically treat utility infrastructure throughout the community. Artist will transform traffic signal control cabinets in Goodyear from only being functional infrastructure to colorful, inspired works of art. The artwork will either be painted directly on the cabinet or created digitally as a vinyl wrap that will be applied to the cabinet.

Location

Cabinets are located on or near street corners where there are traffic signals.  The placement of the cabinets makes them visible to both pedestrian and vehicular traffic.  With this placement, the art should be graphically clear so that a passing car and those walking by at a leisurely pace can view it. 

The cabinets are approximately 78”H x 44”W x 28”D. The final artwork will cover three sides and the top of the cabinet. Artistically enhanced cabinets will be located at the following intersections:

  • Litchfield Rd. & Van Buren St.
  • McDowell Rd. & Palm Valley Blvd.
  • Indian School Rd. & Pebble Creek Pkwy.
  • Pebble Creek Pkwy. & Clubhouse Dr.
  • Yuma Rd. & Canyon Trails Blvd.
  • Yuma Rd. & Wildflower Dr./Village Blvd.
  • Estrella Pkwy. & Roosevelt St.
  • Estrella Pkwy. & Van Buren St.
  • Estrella Pkwy. & Goodyear Blvd. South
  • Estrella Pkwy. & Elliot Rd.

Up to 10 cabinets will be enhanced artistically. The cabinets will either be hand painted or vinyl wrapped. Artist expectations for each application method:
