From Andrea at the Decatur Box Project…
The Decatur Box Project, organized by Larry Holland of Fishbone Art, is entering Phase Two! More than thirty applicants hoped for the opportunity to express themselves by embellishing traffic signal boxes located throughout the city.
Adam Crawford has already completed his box of tigers at the corner of East Ponce de Leon Avenue and Ponce de Leon Place, next to Tzatiki’s (photo above). Austin Blue’s box is in progress at the corner of Commerce Drive and East Ponce de Leon Avenue, and Donna Howells is close to finishing her reading themed box near the library.
