A Community Quilt

"Stitch Together: A Community Quilt" Neighborhood Utility Box Art Project with Virginia Beach Students

Brand new utility box art wraps were recently installed in multiple locations around Virginia Beach!

In "Stitch Together: A Community Quilt," students from Bayside, Rosemont and Bettie F. Williams Elementary Schools teamed up with local artist Jennifer Hand to create the art wraps, as part of a continuing Virginia Beach Public Art Residency Program between the Virginia Beach Cultural Affairs Department and Virginia Beach City Public Schools.

Renderings were created by visual arts students from The Visual & Performing Arts Academy at Salem High School. Utility box wraps are located in the following areas in Virginia Beach City Council Districts 4, 9 and 10:

  • Northampton Blvd. between Burton Station Rd. and Diamond Springs Rd.
  • Rosemont Rd. between Dahlia Dr. and Lynnhaven Pkwy.
  • Lynnhaven Pkwy. between Ski Lodge Rd. and Primrose Ln.
  • Baker Rd. between Hampshire Ln. and Newtown Rd.
  • Newtown Rd. between Diamond Springs Rd. and Deford Rd.
