public art in fort lauderdale
The Downtown Development Authority of Fort Lauderdale has implemented a permanent public art display that has turned the not so nice utility boxes around Fort Lauderdale into functional community features.
15 boxes have been repurposed into free standing works of art, depicting historical images of our city, kaleidoscopic graphics of plants and flowers, performing art scenes, and local sites. Most of the utility box designs will have a map of the surrounding areas, denoting where the viewer is currently located. The new box designs not only help to promote Fort Lauderdale destination spots, but add needed artistic enhancements around the community.
