Utility Box Project

Created in 2020

Location: SE Kansas & Laurent

Welcome to the  NOTO Utility Box project! This project was initiated in 2020 during COVID, giving artists the opportunity to be creative while beautify the district, as well as continuing to build the NOTO community during a time in our lives when it felt so bleak. A total of seven utility boxes were painted inside the NOTO area.   

This utiity box was painted by Michael Mize, All four sides are a continuous composition that feature a classic Kansas landscape which transitions from day to night and also cycles through all four seasons. Each side also includes a Biblical passage that relates to the context of the imagery. 


There are a total of 7 utility boxes located in the NOTO area. Visiting all locations will be sure to help you get your steps in! Choose your path below:
