New Electrical Box Art Mural at SLO Swim Center
By local Box Artist, Nate Erlin
The electrical box design located at the SLO Swim Center, just outside of the Therapy Pool area, posed a bit of a challenge since the prominent face of the box has a large protruding circuit breaker and handle, and the box is also partially obscured by a nearby utility pipe system. The main goal for the Artist was to create a simple, pleasant image and soften the feel of an isolated utilitarian section of an otherwise very nice public park space. That Artist was inspired by San Luis Obispo’s quintessential balance of nature and architectural development. The box art mural depicts San Luis Creek and other elements specific to San Luis Obispo.
