3436 Adams Ave, San Diego, CA 92116
This small utility box sits right near the bus shelter in front of the 7-11 convenience store on Adams Ave. & Hawley Blvd. It may be small but it’s not easy to ignore, drawing the attention of passersby with it’s brightly colored artwork. Painted by local artist Chris Berger, it depicts a desert scene, with rolling red and gold hills contrasted by a bright green cactus. This box was painted somewhat recently, within the last year or so which fortunately for me meant that it was not too weathered by time and the elements just yet. There were some fairly obvious tags written in silvery white paint pen that obscured the bottom portion of the piece on the side of the box that faced the sidewalk. It was easy to fix but I think the difference is quite noticeable! See for yourself.
