Wayfinding Sign Project

... A Cultural District project in partnership with the Smithville Area Chamber of Commerce/Keep Smithville Beautiful Committee.

Smithville has selected its Wayfinding Signs! Thanks to everyone who participated. To the Artists/Designers who submitted their ideas, to the community for voting and commenting on the proposals, to the members of the Jury, and to City Council. And many thanks to the Texas Commission on the Arts, which provided half of the funds needed to make this project a reality. The "Smithville History" concept by David Kampa has been selected and will be installed before the end of August, 2021.

Information about the three submitted concepts is available here:
