MOUNT PLEASANT, SC (February 7, 2017) - The Town of Mount Pleasant is accepting submissions for phase 2 of the Culture, Arts & Pride Commission’s Traffic Box Art project until March 7. Open to residents of the tri-county area, selected artists will have their artwork displayed publicly at various intersections in Mount Pleasant.

Presented by the Town of Mount Pleasant Culture, Arts & Pride Commission, this program aims to promote local artists and to encourage interaction between the creative community, local businesses and residents.
“The first installations of traffic signal box art on Highway 17 have been very well received by the community,” said Special Events Manager Nicole Harvey. “We are excited to begin installing more art through this innovative program that aims to foster community pride.”
The project began in the northern section of Mount Pleasant and will continue south as the program develops. Guidelines are available by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. To submit artwork, email email@example.com or drop off the proposal at 100 Ann Edwards Lane, Building A.
