MOUNT PLEASANT, SC (Sept. 7, 2018) - The Town of Mount Pleasant is accepting submissions for phase four of the Culture, Arts & Pride Commission’s Traffic Box Art project until Oct. 8. Open to residents of the tri-county area, selected artists will have their artwork displayed publicly at various intersections in Mount Pleasant.
The artwork must reflect the community and culture of Mount Pleasant. To apply, the artist must submit renditions of his or her work via email or in person and a high resolution image will be required if the art is selected for the program. Selected designs will be awarded a $250 honorarium.
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 feedback we have received from the community about the traffic box art has been truly incredible,” said Special Events Manager Nicole Harvey. “The Culture, Arts & Pride Commission is excited to be wrapping the final boxes along Highway 17 and to start moving the program into the Coleman Blvd. area.”
The program, which won a Gold Hermes Creative Award this year, now has a total of 16 boxes wrapped from Carolina Park Boulevard to Houston Northcutt/Mathis Ferry Road. The application and guidelines are available at tompsc.com under the Recreation Department’s Special Events Office. To submit artwork, email firstname.lastname@example.org or drop off the proposal at the R.L. Jones Center at 391 Egypt Road.
