Artbox Project SJ

Love to see community infusing art in infrastructure, Well done San Jose!

Wandering in the Wind

If you wander around San Jose, you may notice that a lot of the electrical boxes throughout town are painted with sometimes serene, sometimes crazy, and most of the time awesome scenes. These are the works of artists in the Artbox Project group, dedicated to beautifying drab utility boxes. I took some photos of a few of my favorites.
