The City of Loveland’s Arts Commission is leading a public art project to decorate the city’s traffic signal boxes. Two installments have been added for 2023.
The two new designs join the city’s first traffic signal box wrap — “Bicycles” by Peter Sexton installed in 2022 — that can be found near the intersection of West Loveland Avenue and State Route 48/Second Street (Near Graeter’s Ice Cream).
Check out the new designs the next time you are driving through town:
Artist: Dianne Bomar
Location: Intersection of West Loveland Avenue & South Lebanon Road (Near Prince of Peace Lutheran Church)
Description: Loveland, the "Sweetheart of Ohio," shines so bright in the hearts of those who love her.
“Trail Town Backpack”
Artist: Katie Burgin
Location: Intersection of West Loveland Avenue & Karl Brown Way (Near Haven Grey)
Description: From the creeks and rivers, to the local shops filled with original creations, and the feeling of community through local events... Loveland's sense of adventure and creativity is contagious and hard to ignore. The design illustrates adventure and the life we create from the experiences we have along the way. Life is truly about the journey, and Loveland is the destination from which adventure begins!
In spring, the Arts Commission held a “Call for Art” seeking original designs. Each wrap is expected to last three years and then can be replaced with a new design. Please stay tuned for details about the 2024 Call for Art.
