Mauricio Ramirez has painted murals nationwide and is bringing a taste of his work to Wisconsin Ave.

Wisconsin Avenue becomes even more artful with utility box murals

Earlier this summer, it was announced that Sculpture Milwaukee, an urban outdoor sculpture exhibit, would fill Wisconsin Avenue with 22 sculptures for passersby to enjoy. And now, adding to the artfulness down Wisconsin Avenue, there will be 10 painted murals found on utility boxes down the street. The boxes along Wisconsin Avenue will feature 20 murals – two per box – by visual artist Mauricio Ramirez.

Ramirez has painted murals all around the country, including pieces for major corporations such as Microsoft, Warner Music Group, VitaminWater and others.

If you are someone who walks Wisconsin Avenue often, or if you just enjoy going out and enjoying Downtown and art, here is an illustrated list of where to find all the painted utility boxes.
