The city is encouraging Torontonians to look “Outside The Box.”
It’s a program to beautify lowly traffic signal boxes – as Toronto tries to reduce the impact of graffiti vandalism.
Toronto has more than 2,200 traffic signal boxes and many of them are covered with posters and graffiti.
The “Outside The Box” project enlisted local artists to paint 20 of the signal boxes – and some will be wrapped in anti-graffiti plastic coating featuring brightly coloured graphics.
The project was organized by Streetartoronto, a city initiative promoting community pride.
The “Outside the Box” project is part of the Clean Toronto Together campaign.
