FORT BEND ISD (August 16, 2018) – Two Fort Bend ISD art teachers – Joy Chandler of Leonetti Elementary and Amanda Levermann of Settlers Way Elementary – are among 13 individuals to have their artwork wrapped on traffic signal control boxes along Highway 90 in Sugar Land. The City of Sugar Land Cultural Arts division, in partnership with the Public Works Department and the Sugar Land Cultural Arts Foundation, sponsors the Traffic Box Public Art Project as a way to beautify the right-of-way and brighten the drive for commuters.
Chandler and Levermann are among a group of local and regional artists, ranging in age from 18 to adult, selected by the City of Sugar Land to transform traffic signal control boxes from functional infrastructures to colorful works of art.
