Think Outside the Box

Public art enlivens and enhances cities and can turn public spaces into destinations.  Weaving visual art into an urban environment by offering public art encounters brings people together, creates pride-of-place and invites engagement. 

A collaboration between the City of Attleboro, Transformative Development Initiative (TDI) Partnership, Keep Attleboro Beautiful, Attleboro Arts Museum, local artists and a downtown property owner has been activated to transform the surface of Attleboro’s sidewalk utility boxes into gallery-worthy works of art.   

The Fungus Among Us by Abby Rovaldi appears on a utility box in Attleboro’s Gilbert Perry Square.  This photo is a rendering of the completed box. 

Original drawings, paintings and digital creations from a team of artists that live and/or work in Attleboro encase six of the city’s utility boxes in the heart of the downtown. All of the artists, Tim Elliott, David R. Laferriere, Lindsay Nygaard, Abby Rovaldi, Kerry St. Pierre and Jess Tracey, have volunteered their time and talent to support the program.  

Each box is marked with a QR code. When viewers scan the code with a smartphone camera they’ll find a statement about the artwork pictured on a given box, background on each artist and an online survey to capture their feedback on the program.

This debut edition of Think Outside the Box serves as a pilot program.  It’s funded by the City of Attleboro, Keep Attleboro Beautiful and a private donation. Organizers hope to expand the program throughout the city and turn other basic, functional structures into contemporary, eye-catching street markers.

SHARE YOUR FEEDBACK! Let us know your thoughts on Think Outside the Box. Complete this brief survey: https://forms.gle/934UHpvyUtnCEvU4A

Sponsorship opportunites for additional boxes are available.  Email office@attleboroartsmuseum.org to learn more. 

Think Outside the Box is produced by (in alpha order): Attleboro Arts Museum, City of Attleboro Department of Public Works, City of Attleboro Veteran’s Department, Cool Air Creations, Inc., Rick Correia, Laurie Drucker, George Durante, Catherine Feerick, Mim Brooks Fawcett, Mayor Paul Heroux, Brian Hodess, Kathy Ilkowitz, Keep Attleboro Beautiful, Transformative Development Initiative Partnership – Attleboro, MA.

Six of downtown Attleboro’s utility boxes are covered in original artwork by artists that live/work in the city.

Signs of the Times: Self-guided Tour

When the Attleboro Arts Museum opened its doors in 1923 several area residents supported the organization by gifting fine art, memorabilia and items of aesthetic and historical interest.  These donations came to form the majority of the museum’s permanent collection. 

Today, thanks to funding from a Commonwealth Places COVID-19 Response Round: Resurgent Places grant from MassDevelopment, selections from the permanent collection are on view in a unique exhibition entitled Signs of the Times. This meandering display of art features replicas of permanent collection works imprinted on banners that are attached to downtown Attleboro’s light poles.  Signs of the Times is a coronavirus-safe way for participants to experience art and gain exposure to Attleboro’s downtown restaurants, businesses and attractions.  

You can learn about the work on view by participating in a complimentary self-guided tour. Let’s get started!
