Utility Box Project

Since early 2007, Mission Beach Town Council has supported a community art project in which local artists paint utility boxes with colorful beach-themed murals.  The funding to support this project has come from individual donations, Mission Beach Town Council, and  Mission Beach Woman’s Club.  The money received goes for supplies to clean, prime, paint, and seal the boxes as well as for a small stipend for each artist.    If you are interested in painting a utility box, please contact Maruta Gardner via email at
marutagardner@yahoo.com or by phone at 858-488-8956 .
