Utility Box Public Art Pilot Program

The City of El Cerrito Utility Box Public Art Pilot Program is a beautification initiative designed to add to the vibrancy of the San Pablo Avenue corridor. We invite community artists to participate in this program to help our community transform drab and unsightly utility boxes into attractive and captivating works of art that will enhance the beauty of the City’s streets and sidewalks for years to come.
