If you've walked along Broadway between 15th Street & 17th Street in downtown Oakland recently, your eye may have been caught by the colorful zodiac animals and enigmatic faces painted on the sides of two utility cabinets in front of 1542 Broadway. They're the work of Oakland-based artist and musician Thailan When. 2010 interview.

Beautiful work. I've seen more than a few painted utility boxes and some of them are pretty amazing. It's really a great idea, I wish there was more in the way of civic mural kind of art. It seems like a great missed opportunity community building and love having stuff to look at when I'm walking around.
