Powerful Art: Artists add decorative touch to Old Fourth Ward power boxes

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

If you frequently walk, bike or drive through the Old Fourth Ward, you might have noticed that the neighborhood’s power boxes have been getting a colorful makeover.

The Fourth Ward Alliance initiated the project after seeing the success of a similar project in Decatur. The call for artists went out and funding was secured from the Mayor’s Office of Cultural Affairs, The Neighborhood Fund Grant and the Community Foundation for Greater Atlanta.

Artists were chosen to paint 19 of the bland boxes during the month of May at various intersections along Glen Iris Drive, Boulevard, Edgewood Avenue and Ponce de Leon Avenue.
