Have you seen the Mini Murals around town? Mini Murals is an award-winning project that re-imagines utility boxes as blank canvases brimming with creative opportunity and inviting artistic expression for all to enjoy. These boxes are painted by local and visiting artists and can be found at intersections throughout the city. We love that they help instill civic pride while beautifying neighborhoods and enhancing the urban landscape. To view a map of all of the mini murals in Houston, visit the website at minimurals.org/houston/
