The folks at 11:11 A Creative Collective have launched the program called Street Box Project to “artify” those boring utility boxes that either get tagged or posted with stickers. The project focuses on transforming 10 utility boxes located along the main corridors of Lankershim Blvd. and Magnolia Blvd. into works of art. The theme is “Captured Movement.” After all, we are an arts district with 20+ theatres and six dance studios plus a ton of recording studios. We also can’t forget that NoHo is the METRO hub with the Red Line and Orange Line right here. So we move in North Hollywood.
About Street Box Art
Street Box enhances communities through public art programs that bring beauty to unexpected places such as public infrastructure and utility boxes.
Street Box programs create vibrant environments that contribute to the cultural identity of a region. They beautify urban streetscapes, foster civic pride, discourage vandalism, increase pedestrian traffic and encourage cultural tourism.
Street Box services provide city and community organizations the infrastructure necessary for the successful implementation of new public art programs and/or the seamless integration of public art into existing streetscape and cultural tourism programs.
The project is produced by 11:11 ACC and the NoHo Arts District segment of the North Hollywood Street Box Project has been made possible through a partnership with the Mid-Town North Hollywood Neighborhood Council, the office of Councilmember Paul Krekorian and the North Hollywood Business Improvement District.
