Long Description:

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. This painted utility box was sponsored by the Armoury-Quadrangle Civic Association.

Whitney Weldon of Whitney Works Art Studio has created this brightly painted utility box. It is decorated with a multicolored arrangement of whimsical flowers against a green background. The street side (front) is decorated with overlapping brightly colored flower. The flowers extend to the sides and back of the utility box. The north side is a mostly a completion of the flowers from the front. The south side contains a single white flower. The east (park) side completes flowers that start each of the sides.
