City Art Boxes

City Art Project Banner

The City has over 150 electrical boxes painted by local artists. The next time you're out and about, take a second to appreciate the beauty around you, as well as see some of our local talent brought to life! View them all on Google Maps here.

The City Art Project has currently assigned all locations. To be placed on the waiting list, please submit the City Art Waiting List Form.

If you are under 18 years of age you will need a parent or guardian to sign the Traffic Box Painting Agreement (PDF) as well as the Minor Release Form (PDF).

Once you've signed the agreement, please email City Art your artwork or you can fax it to 409-880-3712. You can also mail it to or drop it off at:

City Hall
801 Main Street
Suite 330
Beaumont, TX 77701.

Once the agreement is signed by both parties and the artwork is approved then you will be able to proceed with painting the box. You will be responsible for cleaning the box and then applying an oil-based primer prior to any artwork. This is necessary to assure that everything adheres properly to the aluminum box. Once the oil-based primer is in place you may use acrylic or any other paint that you would like to create the art.
