    I agree. makes the whole area around the box brighten up, cost is minimal and I think the artist will spend their dough in their community.
    Double win.

    What a great idea. This gives local artists, young and old, to showcase their talents and add to the appearance of those ugly, drab colored boxes. It's time that more of these findings for art in a public place are used for community projects like these, rather than in the past throwing tens of thousands of funding money to the same old local muralist. Thank you Ms. Bridewell for changing the long standing practice of throwing cash at the same old muralist and making these projects available to the many young, talented Lodi community artists.
