Three additional traffic signal boxes in Shelton look more colorful these days, thanks to three local artists and a generous donation from the Martha Reed Foundation.
Art was installed at the following locations in Shelton:
- Kyle Twiddy, “Salish Sea”: Intersection of North 7th & Alder Streets
- Matt Misch, “Bridges to Nowhere”: Intersection of Wallace Kneeland Boulevard & Shelton Springs Road
- Crystal Rodriguez, “98584”: Intersection of Wallace Kneeland Boulevard & Bell Lane
The City, with the assistance of the Martha Reed Foundation, previously installed three other traffic box wraps in 2018.
In February of this year, Parks & Recreation issued a call for artwork submissions from members of the community. We received twenty great entries, and members of the public had the opportunity to vote for their top 3 favorites in March.
Once the votes were cast, the Shelton Arts Commission approved the top three selections. City Council gave final approval for the installation at an April meeting.
The Martha Reed Foundation is a grassroots group of Mason County residents with the intent of making a difference in the local community. They believe that “Giving Is Living” and our small community can make a big impact.
