Calling all artists! The City, in partnership with the FBI – Federal Bureau of Investigation, is accepting submissions for a special traffic signal box design representing the theme “Protecting our Communities Together.”
Every October, the FBI focuses on raising awareness of hate crimes and how a community can properly report them. They have reached out to the City of Bedford to further promote this by hosting a traffic signal box design competition. Submissions should portray themes of community, connection, and love. The winning design will be located at the Forest Ridge Drive and Lincolnshire Drive intersection.
This project is open to artists of all ages in Tarrant County, with preference given to Bedford residents. The original artwork can be from any medium, such as painting, graphic design, photography, or printmaking, but must be submitted as a high-quality image. Winning artwork will be chosen based upon appropriateness, creativity, craftsmanship, and adherence to the theme. In addition, the selected artist will be paid $300 for their work being selected for the project.
The deadline for submissions is 5 p.m. on Friday, September 8, in order to have the traffic signal box wrapped before the national campaign launches. Apply and learn more.
