A Garden Grows .....

While wandering around Queen St W in the Parkdale neighbourhood I stumbled upon this beautifully painted utility box. The artist for this one is Jon McTavish and it was part of a program the Bell Canada had to decorate their boxes in the area. This was a wonderful sight to see on a winter morning.

This is really nice...such great summer colors, and I like how the doors are open which, as Grace notes, is like arms reaching out.

This is such a excellent artistic project that the the City Of Toronto supports. Wish we had something like this in Pickering.

I'm really surprised Bell agreed to let someone paint the equipment box.

Jenn said...

All utility boxes should be covered like that lol!
