Long Description:

Two artistically decorated utility boxes have recently been commissioned by the Westfield on Weekend organization. Both are on Elm Street. The northmost utility box is by the new Pioneer Valley Transportation Authority Olver Pavilion at the corner of Elm and Arnold Streets.

Morgan Sanders was the first artist chosen. She decorated her assigned utility box with well known sights in Westfield. On the street side, the top depicts the Holy Trinity Church and the twin bridges over the Westfield River. Below are the cascading fountains of the Great River Park located between the twin bridges. On the north side is the pavilion located in the newly renovated Park Square in downtown Westfield. The sidewalk side contains a representation of Provin Mountain which forms the eastern boundary of Westfield and the neo-Gothic free standing clock that was erected as part of the Great River Park project. The south side contains the meter and was just painted black.
