Project Overview

The Transformations Project, a collaboration between Art in Public Places and the Loveland Power Department, was developed specifically to bring art to the streets and showcase the plethora of talented Northern Colorado painters.  Since its inception in 2009,  84 electrical cabinets located along major roadways (and other highly visible locations) have served as creative canvases for one-of-a-kind murals thus, transforming everyday objects into unique works of art.  There are currently 77 transformed cabinets engaging the Loveland community.  (Seven early designs have been “retired from service” due to equipment failures.)

The Transformations Project will be on hiatus in 2020.  We do expect to add additional cabinets once 2021 public art projects have been determined.
