Boyle Heights “Art Box” project. The project transformed nine generic City utility traffic-light boxes into original works of art along the First Street Arts Corridor, which is currently undergoing $12 million in Metro funded improvements that Councilmember Huizar helped secure. Councilmember Huizar, champion of the City’s recently adopted mural ordinance, sponsored the Art Box program as a way to promote and encourage more public art in the City of Los Angeles.
Special thanks to Raul Gonzalez, Boyle Heights Art Box Program Coordinator, and the Mural Conservancy of Los Angeles for leading the tour. Featured artists include Gonzalez, as well Fabian Debora; Nuke; Lilia Ramirez (LiliFlor); Vyal One; Ricardo Estrada; Blossom; Sonji Mariposa and Carlos Callejo.
