About

If you’re looking for an art adventure, Vaughan has 12 new public art stops to add to your plans!

The ARTonBOXES program launched through the Group of Seven REMIXED pilot this spring, transforming 12 traffic signal boxes into extraordinary works of art that enhance the creative urban character of Vaughan’s neighbourhoods, beautify city streetscapes, and discourage “tagging” vandalism. Vaughan secondary school visual art specialty students collaborated with the City to create original artwork for the pilot. The art designs, inspired by the spirit of iconic Group of Seven landscape paintings, were converted digitally into vinyl art wraps and installed on traffic signal box canvases city-wide.

The artworks can be viewed on the traffic signal boxes at the following locations:

Major Mackenzie Drive and Keele Street – Maria Suzdaleva, The Calmest Hour

City of Vaughan

With a population of more than 340,000 residents, Vaughan is one of the fastest growing communities in Canada, home to more than 217 ethnic or cultural origins with 113 different languages spoken. It is a vibrant, diverse, inclusive and equity-based community that recognizes and celebrates arts, culture and heritage.

We recognize that Vaughan is situated in the Territory and Treaty 13 lands of the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation. We also recognize the traditional territory of the Huron-Wendat and the Haudenosaunee. The City of Vaughan is currently home to many First Nations, Métis and Inuit people today. As representatives of the people of the City of Vaughan, we are grateful to have the opportunity to work and live in this territory.
