Stoneham

Artists sought to paint utility switchboxes

Continue reading below

A group of volunteers is seeking local artists, including schoolchildren, to paint the town’s public utility switchboxes. Inspired by similar public art displays in other communities, including Malden, Medford, and Somerville, organizers of the Stoneham Switchbox Art Project would like a broad cross-section of Stoneham citizens to create vibrant, eye-catching artwork. The Board of Selectmen has voiced its support for the project. The only requirement for participation, beyond having artistic talent, is that participants live, work, or volunteer in Stoneham. Supplies will be provided, according to Lorraine Bennett, a project organizer.
