Boston is seeking help from local artists to make our neighborhoods more welcoming.

The City of Boston launched its Neighborhood Sign Redesign program this week. The goal is to refresh 15 official neighborhood signs, from Allston to Dorchester and West Roxbury.

“I’m excited for this program to empower our residents to create welcoming, creative signs to reflect the unique, vibrant neighborhoods and communities they live and work in,” said Mayor Wu.

Interested artists can submit a total of three designs based on the provided template by Friday, March 3.

Artists will be selected around mid-March, and we can expect to see fresh signs around the city by this summer.
