Keep Tyler Beautiful’s beautification program, Beauty and the Box, adds three new boxes to its growing list of wrapped traffic cabinets.   

The program began in 2016 with the objective of taking utilitarian traffic boxes and transforming them into works of art, while featuring by local artists. What started as a pilot program of 10 boxes in the Downtown Business Arts and Culture District has grown to 67 vinyl-wrapped traffic cabinets across the city.

Three new traffic signal boxes provide color and beauty to busy city intersections. 

A box featuring art by Dace Kidd stands at East Fifth Street and South Donnybrook Avenue. Sponsors are Plaza Tower and People’s Petroleum Building. 

A box titled "Rose Festival" displaying a photograph by John R. Anderson of the Tyler Morning Telegraph beautifies the intersection at TX-323 Loop and Frankston Highway. Sponsors are the Texas Rose Festival and Tyler Rose Museum. 

The "Art of Peace" box features a photograph by Dr. Scott Lieberman at TX-323 Loop and West Erwin Street. Art of Peace–Tyler is the sponsor.
