Traffic Control Box Beautification Project

The Financial District BIA has partnered with the City of Toronto StART Outside the Box Program to beautify and animate the streetscape with public art on traffic control boxes. A call for artists was issued and more than 50 responses were received. Selections were reviewed in consultation with the City of Toronto, the Financial District BIA, and a public art consultant, and were narrowed to seven semi-finalists, which were presented at a public consultation for additional feedback.

The following five finalists were selected to create designs reflective of the diversity of the city and character of the Financial District, a globally competitive financial centre.
