Decorated Utility Box: Girl & Sandcastle

Girl & Sandcastle
Artistically Decorated Utility Box
Ocean City, NJ

N 39° 16.774 W 074° 34.445

Short Description: 

A beach-going girl and  a sandcastle decorated a utility box on the corner of 8th Street and Central Avenue in Ocean City, NJ.

Long Description:

This 8' high by 6' wide utility box is painted by experienced muralist Susan Rau. On the sidewalk side of the utility box is a large and intricate sandcastle that wraps around one side. The sandcastle is complete with towers that are flying banners and set against a blue sky with three clouds. In the sand are a pail, shovel, sea shell, and bead necklaces.

The other side has a dune fence, dune grass and a laughing gull flying overhead. The street side has a girl headed for the beach with beach accessories: a sun hat, polka dot swimming tube, sunglasses, pail, and an over the shoulder accessory bag. The artist signed her work on a pair of clam shells at the bottom.
