Hamilton will be a bit more colourful this fall, with work from dozens of artists featured on utility boxes around downtown.
The city asked for public feedback on designs earlier this summer and says around 1,900 people weighed in with their opinion.
Local artist Charlit Floriano will decorate a handful of larger electrical boxes downtown; her series "Hamilton Enchanted" corresponds with five specific locations.
The art, printed on graffiti-resistant wraps, will be in place by fall and remain for the next five to 10 years.
Preventing graffiti is a major goal of the public art project, said Ken Coit, the city's public art program manager, earlier this summer.
Meanwhile, a volunteer jury decided on the artist for the five electrical boxes through a more "traditional" public art selection process, said Coit.
The five-person jury made its selection based on about 200 comments from the public, along with artistic excellence, "ability to deter graffiti" and other factors, the city says.
The featured artists will receive $650 for their design, while Floriano will earn $4,000 for her five-box series.
