The City of San Leandro is partnering with Streets Alive to develop artistic enhancements for those ugly gray utility boxes you see on street sidewalks. With a theme of “Sustainability, Technology & Innovation,” the Streets Alive team is looking for local San Leandro or Alameda County artists and community members who are interested in displaying their artwork on a box. Selected artists will be compensated for their work and their art will display on East 14th Street and in other locations around the city.

By installing artwork on utility boxes in San Leandro, we create a platform for storytelling and communication, transforming ugly, obtrusive utility boxes into vibrant art pieces and a topic of interest for the community. If the initial pilot project is successful, the City will look to partner with property owners and expand the program to additional locations.

Want to have your art featured on one of the boxes? Apply now!

  1. Ola, I’m not so much as looking to paint a box as I’m to suggesting some much needed artist subject me.
    I’m a portuguese american fado singer born to portuguese immigrants that came here in the 1940s and I have traveled all over the world in sharing the culture.
    You can find photos of me online.
    Just google my name.
    Obrigada,

  2. P.s. hayward has a jump start on us with the painting of the boxes and they did a great job of representing the hispanic culture with music and art and musicians. I am suggesting we represent something from Portugal as to representing the Portuguese immigrants that helped to buid San Leandro.
