Winning art submissions brighten Edmonton’s streets

June 13, 2024

The City of Edmonton installed the 12 winning designs from the Vibrant Streets Art Contest, making our streets more lively and celebrating the rich artistry and culture of our city. Participants submitted stunning pieces of original artwork for potential designs to wrap around decorative traffic control boxes around the city. 

“The Vibrant Streets Art Contest launched in August 2023, giving residents the opportunity to share their ideas and creativity through art,” said Councillor Andrew Knack, “It also supports the City’s goal of transforming public spaces into vibrant, beautiful and inviting places to gather and celebrate diverse communities thriving across Edmonton.” 

The City received nearly 100 submissions and City staff narrowed it down to 28 finalists for the public to vote on their 12 favourite designs. One winning design has been installed in each City ward.

“The decorative traffic control boxes increase the vibrancy of our City’s streets, sidewalks and alleyways,” said Jenny Albers, General Supervisor of Planning and Permitting, Traffic Operations. “We’re excited to install the winning artwork and showcase the creativity, talent and diversity of city residents.”

Winning artist Alaynee Goodwill-Littlechild said of their design, “I wanted to push the boundaries of my own creativity and contribute to the vibrant cultural fabric of our city. I was drawn to the idea of creating something that can be experienced and enjoyed by people from all walks of life, and that can inspire a sense of wonder, curiosity and connection."

The Vibrant Street programs supports Edmontonians in adding vibrancy to their communities through outdoor patios, decorative crosswalks, alleyways, and traffic control boxes.
