That's a Wrap 2024 Call for Submissions

Submit your Artwork

The Kawartha Lakes’ That’s a Wrap Traffic Control Box (TCB) art program is a temporary public art initiative to wrap select traffic control boxes along the Kawartha Lakes road network with artist created imagery. Starting in 2022, the City has worked with local artists to help beautify the landscape by wrapping its municipal traffic control boxes with themed artwork. Currently there are 19 wrapped traffic control boxes across the community: Fenelon Falls, Bobcaygeon, Argyle, Omemee and Lindsay. In total, 29 traffic control boxes will be wrapped by 2025.

In collaboration with Kawartha Arts Network, the goal of the program was to enliven our downtown landscapes with eye-popping artwork that captures and displays the individual and collective experiences of our community on traffic control boxes around the municipality.

Visual artists and graphic designers in Kawartha Lakes are invited to submit digitally created artwork, or scans of original artwork through our online form. This year’s theme is agriculture and rural life has been chosen to support the theme of the International Plowing Match & Rural Expo (IPM) coming to Lindsay from October 1 to 5, 2024. Submissions can represent a range of activities from hanging clothes on a clothesline to horses out to pasture. They could portray sitting around a campfire, swaying stands of corn or flowers down a country lane.

Ten (10) works of art are required to wrap ten (10) municipal traffic control boxes. Successful traffic control box submissions will receive a $200 honorarium for their work.  In addition to the (10), another three (3) are required to fill out the monthly requirements of the 2025 Municipal Calendar, including the front cover.

For more details, including submission requirements and schedule, please visit the online form.
