The City of Tyler Beauty and the Box program is a beautification effort that began in 2016 to take utilitarian traffic boxes and transform them into works of art by local artists. What started as a pilot program of 10 boxes in the Downtown Business Arts and Culture District has grown to 58 vinyl-wrapped boxes all across the City of Tyler.

Above is artwork created by Susan Sellars featured at Loop 323 and Paluxy Drive. It is sponsored by Champions for Children. Below, is artwork by John York, at University Boulevard and Lazy Creek Drive, sponsored by Ogle Constructions.


Keep Tyler Beautiful’s goal is to encourage beautification, waste reduction and recycling activities in the community. Through planning, initiating and coordinating programs for litter control, environmental sustainability and beautification, they strive to bring people together and raise public interest in building a cleaner, better city.
