“Thru” by Davin Hoyt

Davin Hoyt’s image Thru covers the utility box at Eighth Street and Austin Avenue on the downtown Square. Hoyt’s photographs are designed to hide the box in plain sight. Step back and look at what’s behind the side you’re viewing.

In 2012, the City published a call for artists to submit images with which two downtown utility boxes could be wrapped. Five artists submitted a total of nine images, and the Arts and Culture Board selected two, awarding each of the artists a $100 honorarium.
