Love how they look, so beautiful

Congrats!

It would be nice if someone could actually paint on one of them

Love this idea and they are turning out beautifully

love the ones we see when driving places! Thought about getting out and taking pictures - is there a place on the city's web site that has them all that's completed? would love to share

I absolutely love this idea! It really has turned these boxes into something beautiful. Thanks City of PSL!

Beautiful

Great job. They look wonderful.

Such a nice addition to the city! My kids love spotting a new one!

Hopefully we get them here in The Lakes....ours look terrible

Shortly after moving here in November I saw these wrapped boxes, and I thought, “Wow, that looks amazing!” I am so glad the city is doing more!

And they all are free, which cost the tax payers nothing...😂

Love seeing them & great idea. These are beautiful!

Fabulous idea! So nice to live in a city that cares!

They are beautiful, I love them!!

Just moved here and I love the wrapped utility boxes. Good job finding a beautiful solution to something of an eye sore.

That's a nice idea...beautify the city

Love this idea, & they are all beautiful. 😊

LOVE THIS ONE! Noticed it today :D

This is one of the MANY reasons I love our recently-adopted City. Art is EVERYWHERE, as is music! Well done, PSL, well done!
