A painted utility box on the southeast corner of Chestnut and Taylor Streets in Springfield, MA features an electric eel.
Eighteen artists have been chosen by the Springfield Central Cultural District to paint and beautify electrical utility boxes in the downtown area of Springfield. The first boxes were painted on Monday May 23, 2016 and the program will continue throughout the month and beyond. Many of the paintings will be sponsored by local organizations and businesses.
Sydney Briggs decorated this utility box with a large electric eel against an electric blue background. The brown eel starts on the street (west) side and continues onto the north, east, and south sides of the utility box in a serpentine clockwise fashion. A yellow bolt of lightning accents the street side of the utility box.
