Bismarck BoxArt Project
Arts and culture are part of the economic development package that builds prosperous communities.
In 2013, Dakota West Arts Council (DWAC) and the City of Bismarck began a partnership to transform metal traffic utility boxes throughout the city into canvases for public art. Called Bismarck BoxArt, the project was designed as a way to enhance North Dakota’s capital city. Bismarck BoxArt features high-resolution images of paintings, and photographs by local and regional artists transferred to a unique 3-M adhesive product and then wrapped on traffic signal utility boxes in downtown Bismarck. The overall theme is “Reflections of North Dakota.”
LOCATIONS AND INFORMATION
There were initially 14 traffic utility boxes covered with art in Downtown Bismarck.
