Utility Box Art

In 2017, the City of Dublin began a Utility Box Art program, hiring professional artists to decorate utility boxes with original paintings.  This popular program has added color and character to Dublin's streets, and deters graffiti vandalism. The artwork on the boxes is considered temporary art, but a protective coating has been added to all boxes to lengthen their lifespan.
