From leading the effort to rewrite the City’s mural ordinance to co-authoring legislation to increase public art opportunities through the City’s art development fee program, Councilmember Huizar is one of the City’s biggest public art advocates. Through Councilmember Huizar's Utility Art Box project, more than 140 utility boxes in Council District 14 have been transformed from drab gray boxes into “mini-murals!” Councilmember Huizar wants to ultimately see all CD14 utility boxes beautified with murals painted by local artists. Below are a just a few of the many boxes in CD14.
