I received photos from the Traffic Signal Mural Project of my finished utility box. My design, “Wet Paint” is an old favorite, a shot of the perfect juicy swirl of vibrant colors Sawyer had on his palette one hot summer day before he dug in with his brush. I love the contrast of this image against the brick wall.

I’m excited to be part of two current public art initiatives – in Minneapolis and Mankato – that will turn unsightly utility boxes into works of art. Love this type of civic initiative!

This is what the proposal/design layouts look like. Someday, when the boxes are complete, I’ll post photographs of the finished work!

Nokomis Piers: one of  12 designs selected by the City of Minneapolis for the utility box wrap project.
