Mini Murals Houston was created by UP Art Studio in 2015, with support from the City of Houston Public Works, Mayor’s Office of Cultural Affairs, Fresh Arts, East End Foundation, and Council Member Larry Green, who sponsored 31 boxes in the pilot phase. Mini Murals Houston has grown to more than 400 painted traffic signal control cabinets throughout the greater metropolitan area.
The project has won several awards, and has been sponsored by council members, management districts, neighborhood associations, organizations, corporations, grants, and others sources, making the project a success.
