Painted Traffic Box: Beautiful Graffiti

Walking along Portland St. last week I couldn’t resist snapping a picture of the painted traffic box at the corner of Portland and Prentice.  These painted boxes scattered around HRM are part of  projects by Aliant and HRM to bring art to the community and discourage defacement of these boxes.   More information about these painted boxes is found at A Change of Art blog by Geoff Tobin and on HRM’s webpages too.

It is fun to spot these as you walk around Halifax and Dartmouth.  The styles and subjects are as varied as the artists who have painted them.
