  1. These are terrific — it’s obviously a widespread idea. We now have a well-established history of murals on Bell (telephone) boxes and traffic signal boxes here; a Long Beach friend sent me photos of utility boxes there; now I see this wonderful art in San Diego as well. It’s such a good idea: looks good, and cuts down on vandalism as well.
