Utility Boxes

Inspired by similar projects around the country and expanding on the success of the Utility Art Wrapped Boxes in the ViBe Creative District, Cultural Affairs is looking to take this program around the City of Virginia Beach. The art wrapped utility boxes will provide selected neighborhoods a sense of identity and serve to activate the selected areas supporting walkable neighborhoods connected by community inspired art.

In partnership with the Virginia Beach City Public Schools (VBCPS) Visual Arts Department, a local artist will closely work with students to create original artwork based on common themes such as: Community Dreams, This is Me!, How My City Moves, etc. The theme will be decided by the collaboration between the artist and the selected schools.
