First launched in 2010, San Luis Obispo put out calls to artists to paint utility boxes spread throughout the city for a $1,000 to $1,500 stipend. Artists had to submit an application, and win approval from a public art jury; as well as the Architectural Review Commission and, in some cases, the Cultural Heritage Committee. Phase two of the project went into effect in 2012. To date, 32 boxes have been painted. PHOTOS BY MORGAN CHADWELL AND STEVE E. MILLER
