Utility Box Art

Feb 3, 2016

IMG_9344South Pasadena has followed in the path of many cities that have decided to bring art to the streets. Actually, to the sidewalks and traffic light utility boxes.

Ten artists submitted their ideas to the South Pasadena Arts Council in the summer of 2015 and now South Pasadena beams with ostriches, picnics in the park, route 66, and the beloved (and detested) wild parrots.
