A new art project has taken the idea of painting Calgary's utility boxes a step further with 12 local artists getting the chance to showcase their print works.
The city's Utility Box Public Art Program started in 2010 to help prevent graffiti. Since then over 140 utility boxes have been decorated by local artists.
As part of the new program — a collaboration with Alberta Printmakers — lead artist Eveline Kolijn agreed to mentor 12 other artists for six weeks, transforming 12 boxes on the west side of the 5 and 6 Ave. S.W. corridors.
