All That Lettering


Artists could choose their own subject matter, subject to review. The 5' metal boxes were primed for us and then clear coated after. Acrylics was the medium.


Electrical boxes were painted as a community project to beautify downtown. Because mine was across from the Chamber of Commerce I chose to make a collage of agricultural products grown in Bakersfield.
