Members of the and San Diego Club 33 Rotarians joined forces Saturday morning to scrub and put primer coats on utility boxes that will be painted by the winners of the "" art contest.
More than 20 utilities boxes located along the downtown business corridor were prepped for the project that will turn the fixtures into works of public art. Saturday's effort was in conjunction with Rotarians at Work Day, a worldwide day of hands-on service held by the organization each year on the last Saturday in April.
Rotarians gathered at at 8 a.m. and worked throughout the hot morning scrubbing, sanding and painting the utility boxes with a primer coat that will give the community artists a fresh canvas with which to work.
Look for the painted boxes to make a debut soon—the Rotary expects to confirm the designs and meet with the artists this week.
