Mural - Traffic Signal Box Art
2801 East Washington St., Indianapolis, IN
Artist Tosca Carranza was commissioned by Near East Area Renewal to paint five traffic signal control boxes along Rural Street, in a series called “I Love My Neighborhood.” The design for this box represents happiness: the bluebird’s bright color and energetic behavior have been associated with happiness since ancient times in cultures around the globe, popularized in this country in a 1934 song called the ‘Bluebird of Happiness.’
Tosca Carranza is a painter and art educator who lives on Indianapolis’ Near Eastside.
