Public Art Initiatives
In Summer 2020, the Amesbury Cultural Council began embarking upon a renewed partnership with the City of Amesbury to enhance and enliven public spaces with art.
To launch this public art partnership, we are pleased to announce an art initiative to paint the necessary, but not very attractive, electrical boxes around town. The plain-Jane dropbox outside City Hall? That could use a creative coat of paint as well.
We've selected 10 artists to paint the electrical boxes around the theme "The Art of Community." We can't wait to unveil their designs, so over the next couple of months, keep a lookout for painters at work.
