San Francisco-based artist Mona Caron beautifully painted this utility box at the intersection of Church St. and Duboce Ave. in San Francisco to make the drab grey box disappear into its urban surroundings and make those surroundings appear more utopian.
The Utility box envisions the mega-supermarket demolished and replaced with a local farmers’ market, but with its rear wall with the mural saved and propped up. This is a vision taken from Chris Carlsson’s utopian novel “After the Deluge” - so this painting pays homage to his homage.
That big mural seen both behind and on the utility box is the Duboce Bikeway Mural, also the work of Mona Caron.
