Photo Hunt: Painted

My lovely friend, Maria Hunt, painted some of the traffic light boxes on our Palm Desert shopping street, El Paseo. Art in public places is very important in Palm Desert, and is supported by the city and local businesses. Maria painted the 18th hole of Desert Willow Golf Course.


The scene wraps around both metal boxes, containing traffic light equipment. Here is Maria, with her art!

What a great way to cover up an eyesore!

Those are really cool. They definitely do cover up some of the ugliness of our infrastructure. I also like how it tied into local golf course. She is very talented.

That is such a cool way to cover up those ugly metal boxes. She is very talented. Love these photos! Thanks so much for sharing. Great take on the theme this week. :)

Kudos to the city of Palm Desert for being so innovative and resourceful. Using a talented artist in this way is beneficial on so many levels. Maria is so talented and adorable too!


Great photos, Palma!
