The NRH Signal Art Program was implemented in 2007 to enhance the City’s Art in Public Spaces Program. The program works with local artists to design original artwork for traffic signal boxes located throughout the City with rotating exhibits that change approximately every five years.
The North Richland Hills Signal Art Program has attracted national attention in the years since it commenced, with several North Texas cities now joining in to beautify byways and intersections with remarkable art.
The current NRH Signal Art Program installations feature “Music Legends” in addition to three North Richland Hills schools. The Signal Art boxes serve as the City's “outdoor art gallery” in addition to being used as wayfinding markers and “selfie spots” by commuters, residents and visitors to the City.
The NRH Signal Art Program is funded solely by donations made through water bills and individual donors.
