2008 Transformer Cabinet Mural Projects

The City of Fort Collins Art in Public Places Program (APP) along with the Fort Collins Utilities (Light and Power) worked with local artists and non-profit groups to add beauty to selected electrical transformer cabinets in the downtown area.

Artists and non-profit groups were chosen through the APP selection process to paint colorful murals on transformer cabinets in various locations throughout Fort Collins. This exciting project is designed to help mitigate graffiti on these cabinets that are often tagged. The APP Program used local artists and community groups to help solve this problem to enhance our community.
