Traffic Box Art Wrap Program
In 2021, the City implemented a Traffic Box Art Wrap pilot program with the goal of enhancing community character and celebrating Centennial’s identity and tying public art to our history. Under this program, vinyl murals were designed, printed, and installed on 20 of the 88 Centennial-owned traffic control boxes distributed across the City.
In March 2023, the Centennial Arts and Cultural Foundation partnered with the City to invite, review and select community artists to display their creativity on the Traffic Box Wraps throughout the city. Call for artists continues until June 11. More information can be found here.
The traffic box art is meant to contribute to the vitality and attractiveness of our community, deter graffiti, add to the vibrancy of our cityscape and create a sense of place and identity.
The City contracted with a professional artist for this initial pilot year and commissioned designs intended to reflect Centennial’s Mission, Vision, Values and Strategic Plan.
Vision: The City of Centennial is a connected community where neighborhoods matter, education is embraced, businesses are valued, and innovation absolute.
Mission: Driven to provide exceptional service to the Centennial community.
Core Values: Collaborative, Intentional, Service Oriented, & Innovative

Designs have been intentionally distributed geographically across the entire City to be equally enjoyed by all residents. For this initial year, reports of graffiti removal from the Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office helped influence location selection.
