Wrapped Utility Box – TS9
Utility boxes around the globe are being painted or wrapped in local artists’ artwork and Elgin is among the cities to have one of these programs! Working with the city of Elgin’s maintenance department and utility companies, utility works boxes will be heat wrapped with local artists’ artwork beginning in Spring 2019. Not only does this program deter graffiti, it also encourages community building and placemaking while promoting original artwork by local artists.
Box TS9 was the first wrapped utility box of its kind in Downtown Elgin! You can see this box near the corner of Highland Avenue & Riverside Drive.
