The Cultural District continues to infuse art into daily life through our Electrical Box Paint Program in Natick Center. We have two more fantastic boxes being painted this month by some wonderful artists.
One of them is located on 135 near the end of Washington Ave. and painted by Catherine Gruetzke-Blais, a local art teacher. Her electrical box comes alive with the red-tailed hawk, the eastern wild turkey, mallard, cardinal, blue jay and other native creatures. Her stylistic flair makes the commute to work or shopping downtown a eye catching treat.
Eddie Bruckner, our second artist, is no stranger to the painting of electrical boxes as he has already painted one near Fenway Park, as well as a travelling piano in Boston.
His electrical box celebrates this Massachusetts tradition that runs through Natick each April. Visit his website for more details at about him and his other projects at:
These are both works in progress so please make sure to visit the finished boxes by the end of September. We will also have an unveiling ceremony for the artists during Natick Artists Open Studios on Sunday, October 22nd.
We are thankful to the artists for lending their expertise and talent to the blooming art scene in Natick. Also, to the Mass Cultural Council for it's support of the district as well as our Public Art Committee .
