In downtown Boise, 15 traffic boxes are now a little brighter. 

The Boise City Department of Arts and History has just finished wrapping 15 traffic boxes in designs created by local artists. Many of the artists have never been part of a public art project, including 12-year-old Fresco Arts Academy student Zoe Tormollen, whose work can be found at the intersection of State and 11th streets.

Eight more art-bearing traffic boxes will be unveiled in September, joining the 80 boxes across the city that have already been wrapped.
