Buena Park issues call for crosswalk designs

ALL FOR ART! The City of Buena Park is looking for artists to create an original, computer-generated crosswalk design that reflects the history, diversity, and beauty of the City as part of the Art in Public Places Program.

Art in Crosswalks is a new program that will activate public spaces, engage the attention of drivers or pedestrians, and celebrate the history and culture of Buena Park.


Artwork must be in a subdued-colored aesthetic that is devoid of light-reflective properties (i.e., glitter). As per the Federal Highway Administration guidelines, artwork must be patterned but may not include octagons, triangles, or other shapes, text, and logos that could be confused with standard traffic control devices, legends, or messages.

Submissions: Please submit computer-generated images of potential artwork and a short biography or artist statement to [email protected] by January 31, 2020.
