Colorful mini-murals on utility boxes are popping up all over the neighborhood, thanks to talented artists who are helping bring more public art to the community and beautifying some of the area’s busiest thoroughfares.

With funding from the Neighborhood Council of Westchester/Playa (NCWP), Councilmember Mike Bonin’s office and the Drollinger Family Charitable Foundation (DFCF), and with support from the Playa Venice Sunrise Rotary, 11 designs were selected and approved by the committee, the NCWP and the city.

Artists began painting in mid-January, and all of the boxes are anticipated to be completed by March. To view a map of completed boxes, visit thehtn.com.

The Westchester/Playa Arts Committee is looking to secure additional funding and hopes to announce the next call for utility box artists in the spring.
