Public Art Utility Boxes

UTILITY BOX BEAUTIFICATION PROJECT

Various Artists and Locations

 

Commissioned in 2012 by the Coeur d'Alene Arts Commission, this project was presented to artists, graphic designers, photographers, illustrators, and other creative individuals residing within a 100 mile radius of Coeur d'Alene.  The utility boxes, which keep lights flashing and communications running, are undiscovered canvases for individuals with the imagination to cover them with their artwork.

Public art can be a change agent for the community.  It creates and enhances neighborhood and community identity.  It enhances the visual landscape and character of the city.  It turns ordinary spaces into community landmarks and promotes community dialogue and, most importantly, it is accessible to everyone.
