Created By: The Avenue Concept


Heather Annis is an artist and educator living in Providence, RI. “Scintillio” plays homage to the large pole-mounted holiday decorations that were installed in Warren along Main Street for many years. The artist recalls that they were loud and campy, unlike anything she had seen anywhere else, and the effect was magical. The box design is intentionally abstract and uses a wide palette. Although the imagery is personally evocative of Christmas for Annis, it is meant to be of universal appeal and to make aesthetic sense during any season.

The Warren Utility Box Project is a collaboration between The Town of Warren, The Warren Arts & Culture Committee, and The Avenue Concept, a RI-based non-profit that makes public art happen.
