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, volunteer artists that either live and/or work in Attleboro, and generous individuals 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 Phase 1 box.

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.

Organizers hope to expand the program throughout the city and turn other basic, functional structures into contemporary, eye-catching street markers.
