Culver Citys Almost Invisible Boxes


This is our quaint city center that has completely transformed in the last three years. Just prior to all the new restaurants and galleries moving in we noticed the utility boxes. Although at first it appeared to be the work of crafty graffiti artists we came to the conclusion, due to the amount of money a project such as this would cost, that the city was behind it.


Artist Joshua Callaghan applied photographs to vinyl on all four sides of the nine eye sores to "integrate the boxes into the surrounding landscape".



This installation is located in downtown Culver City's Town Plaza.
