Electrical box art installationThe sight of ugly infrastructure can make our streets look very unloved – however Point Chevalier received a bit of loving recently with two utility  boxes getting makeover.

I proposed the sites as stand out candidates for the transformation. While the library got a set of travel books, the Category 1 listed historic Oakley Asylum got its façade transferred onto the signal box opposite.

The art works should reduce graffiti and bill stickering while improving placemaking and amenity in Point Chevalier.
