The City of Sugar Land Cultural Arts division in partnership with the Public Works department and the Sugar Land Cultural Arts Foundation have “wrapped” thirteen boxes located along Hwy 90 between Interstate Hwy 59 and Hwy 6. The City sought regionally-based artists to transform traffic signal control boxes in Sugar Land from functional infrastructure into colorful inspired works of art. The selected artists comprise a diverse cross-section of the local and regional community, and range in age from 18-years-old to adults.
GOALS OF THE PROJECT

Provide a memorable welcome for visitors to Sugar Land
Enhance an area in Sugar Land that could be a future Cultural District
