The City of Midland wants to spruce up downtown by having artists put some color and create a work of art on those grey traffic boxes.

According to NewsWest 9, the contest is called "Think Outside the Box" and calls on local artists to make their mark on those dull grey traffic boxes downtown.

The city will choose five winners and each one will get to see their art on display as well as getting a $250 cash prize.

The requirements for the submissions are on the City of Midland website.
