Have you noticed those big, ugly, often tagged, utility boxes at the side of the street? You’re not the only one and the City of Calgary is doing something about it through their Utility Box Public Art Program! It has been running since 2010 and our communities here in North Central are now getting the makeover treatment. (Yes, this is good art going into our community!)

Keep your eye out later in August and September for a colony of artists painting our utility boxes along Country Hills Boulevard through the City’s program.

For now, we’re asking for your help to choose the designs that are going on some of the boxes:

1. TIINA MOORE’s utility boxes

Tiina has three utility boxes along Country Hills Boulevard, at the intersections with Country Village Way, the entrance to Country Hills Town Square and Coventry Hills Blvd. She will be showcasing her designs at Vivo and wants the community to choose which they like best! Please come and vote on August 22nd from 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM at Vivo.

2. SARAH FRIESEN’s utility boxes

Sarah has 2 boxes, but only one is in our community, located on the SE corner of Country Hills Boulevard and Country Hills Village entrance. She would like your input into her design! Her survey can be accessed at: www.surveymonkey.com/r/V6BCL8P

There are other artists painting boxes along Country Hills Boulevard, too. Raghu (Raghavendra Rao), has met with the NHCA to discuss his playful designs for boxes at the Harvest Hills end of the community. He hopes to start work during the week of August 24th.

If you see anyone painting these boxes feel free to stop and chat, but most importantly, say “thanks!” for making our community that little bit more wonderful.
