Art Outside the Box
Began in 2015 by the Civic Improvement Commission, the Art Outside the Box public art program has enabled City-owned traffic utility control cabinets to be painted by local artists in Santa Clara County. Eleven cabinets were painted during Phase I in 2015. This year, nine cabinets are being painted as part of Phase II. This program has been funded by sponsorships and donations from residents and businesses, as well as civic and other non-profit organizations. Learn more about Art Outside the Box by clicking here.
