Quick Description: 

A decorated utility boxes commissioned by the Pittsfield Artscape Committee is located on North Street at Persip Park in downtown Pittsfield, MA.

Long Description:

The City of Pittsfield Artscape Committee has chosen the eight designs that are now painted on utility boxes throughout the downtown area. All he boxes were painted July 9th and 16th 2016 and were unveiled on July 21, 2016 during the Third Thursday street fair.

Paul Dodds created this decorated utility box located in a fenced in alcove on top of an embankment with railroad tracks below. The utility box is painted orange on the front and sides. A black line drawing of faces of all types and shapes, some normal - some grotesque, are painted on the front and sides. The back is very close to the fence and not easily seen and photographed. There seems to be some black line drawings of vegetation against an unpainted background; most probably old graffiti not done by the artist.
