Tour Information

Warren, RI is known for its food, sights, and beautiful streets. Enjoy this snapshot of the city as you find the various vibrantly colored utility boxes featuring great local and regional artists.

Utility boxes turn from mundane panels of metal to delightful and thought-provoking human-scale murals with the talent of artists willing to take on the challenge of working in multiple dimensions.

Utility boxes can also be a way for visitors to weave through streets and discover our city and for residents to consider new views of familiar places.

Learn more about each of the boxes and the artists who created them both on this tour and by following their work on social media. And, be sure not to miss Warren's most recent mural addition at Blount Fine Foods.
