The Palms Utility Box Mural Beautification Project is now complete! Students from Hamilton High School, in collaboration with local professional artists John Trevino and Diana Sofia Estrada, and the nonprofit LA Commons, were funded by the Palms Neighborhood Council to paint beautiful murals on utility boxes in Palms. The artwork designs for the utility boxes were based on stories collected from stakeholders in the community. These boxes represent the history, culture and institutions of Palms andwere meant to beautify the neighborhood. If you like the project, sign up for our newsletter to find out about future projects.

Below are the utility box mural designs, approved by Los Angeles City Council President Herb Wesson and the Palms Neighborhood Council, or click here to download all of the designs as a .pdf.
