Location: Rahr-West Art Museum Parking lot off 9th Street

Artist: Jennifer Anne

Date: 2021

This utility box was part of a 2021 collaboration between the Rahr-West Art Museum Public Arts Committee and Manitowoc Public Utility.Ten utility boxes in downtown Manitowoc were painted by local artists with designs based on works from the Museum’s collection.

Jennifer Anne remarked, “inspiration for my design came from Island by Stanley William Hayter. Island evokes of sun, land, water, connection, and movement, without using representational imagery. Shapes and lines are informed by their neighboring shapes and lines, illustrating an evolution.”
