BOPA and the Baltimore City Department of Transportation are pleased to announce a  public art opportunity that hopes to brighten and enhance the pedestrian and community experience along York Road.

Artists are invited to design and create original street signs that will be placed along York Road between 43rd and Glenwood Ave.  Multiple artists will be selected to participate in the project and can choose from creating an image directly onto a blank steel sign or submitting a design to be professionally printed.

So what do you think is missing from the existing cannon of street sign visual culture? What would you add to the landscape given the opportunity?

Submission Deadline: December 1st, 2013 at midnight
