Decorated Utility Box: City Buildings - Springfield, MA

City Buildings
Springfield, MA

N 42° 06.131 W 072° 35.129

Short Description: 

A painted utility box on the westernmost State and Maple Streets (there are two such intersections 100' apart) in Springfield, MA is painted with a collage of city buildings.

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 Maplegate Rehab.

Terry Sullivan used, predominately, tones of green and blue to create this collage of city buildings that cover all four sides of this utility box. The buildings are representative examples of the types of structures found in Springfield.
