The second-to-last utility box was wrapped this week, this one at the southeast corner of Ballard Commons Park.
The design is by local artist Sarah Robbins; her work will also be on the final utility box at the corner of 24th Ave NW and NW 56th Street, which will be wrapped next Wednesday.
The utility box art is a joint project between the Ballard Alliance and Ballard Public Art Committee, in which seven total downtown Ballard utility boxes will be wrapped.
The Ballard Alliance tells My Ballard that the boxes are public art works, and completed with special permission and permits from the City. “To that end, we kindly ask that individuals do not write on them or attach posters to them.”
The utility box project is funded in part by the Seattle Department of Neighborhoods’ Small Sparks Grant with funds matched by the Ballard Alliance.
