Q: Where are the traffic signal boxes located? Traffic signal box locations 2020

Q:My Art submission was accepted and used as a Traffic Signal box cover the last time the City of Helena covered boxes. Can I submit another design this go around? Yes, if your work was selected before, you are still eligible to submit another this time.

Q: Do you accept submission via Dropbox? No, not this time. Please submit your designs via CD-Rom or Flashdrive.

Q: I have my own original artwork for sale in a gallery, can I submit it, or a part of it, for a Traffic Signal Box. Yes, as long as it is not mass-produced for sale and you understand that the Traffic Signal Box Design becomes the property of the City of Helena.

Q: I am a member of HPAC. Can my daughter submit a design? Yes, as all submissions remain anonymous when submitted and during the selection process.

Q: Does the art piece have to be one solid piece that would cover the whole box, or can you do separate pieces that go together on each side and top of the box? The piece of art must be one piece, but you could have different pictures on the various sides. If you look on page 6 of 6 on the RFP there is a document with the dimensions required.

Q: In the RFP the Selection Criteria mentions “Appropriateness of the concept to the location”. Could I get clarification on this please? I would be disappointed to miss my chances if it has to be Helena inspired and I missed the mark. The designs will cover traffic signal boxes at intersections. It does not necessarily need to be Helena inspired. Please follow the dimensions mentioned on the RFP so there is an appropriate fit for your design. Here is a link to Traffic Box designs in the past you can also refer to the City of Helena website   and this tourism website  if you want to get a better "flavor" for the culture of Helena.
