Shaker Arts Council (SHAC) is announcing the unveiling of seven newly wrapped utility boxes throughout Shaker Heights. The designs are the winning entries of the 2022 Painting the Town project, supported in part by the Ohio Arts Council (OAC). The high school student-designed box by recent graduate
Carmen Joachimsmeyer–Gordon can be viewed at the Shaker Heights Middle School, 20600 Shaker Boulevard. The box designed by professional artist Georgio Sabino III can be seen on the median at Shaker Boulevard/Coventry Road. This unique box is interactive and features augmented reality. When
you scan the attached QR code with a smartphone or tablet, the box will come alive. Other boxes by professional artists can be found at the intersections of South Park Boulevard/Lee Road (Allison Wooley), South Woodland Road/Torrington Road and South Woodland Road/Belvoir Boulevard (Anna Hsu), South Green Road/Fairmount Boulevard (David Thal) and Warrensville Center Road/Fairmount Circle (Alicia Vasquez). These boxes have been added to SHAC’s Shaker Heights Public Art Green Line Tour that can be accessed by computer or mobile device at shakerartscouncil.org. The Blue Line Tour can be
found on the website, as well. Feel free to bike, drive or walk using your electronic device, or take the tour virtually. For more information visit
