At Carlisle/Wortman Associates we understand the importance of public art in a community and we also understand the need for infrastructure. So it was a no-brainer for us to support PowerArt!, a collaboration between the Ann Arbor Downtown Development Authority, the Public Art Commission and the Arts Alliance. The project covers traffic boxes in downtown Ann Arbor with vinyl, printed art reproductions by local artists. Considered public art or an urban canvas the traffic boxes contribute colorful, eye-catching fun to downtown while discouraging flyer-posters and graffiti artists from covering the boxes. You’ll find our powered-up box at the corner of Ashley and Washington.
