One of the things I love about Seattle is there's art on pretty much every street!  

Trying to track down the street art on the bus commute to and from work is way more entertaining. I recently moved to West Seattle and started noticing a makeover for these random electrical boxes throughout the community. I saw that the artist, Desmond Hansen tagged all the boxes with his social media handle (@DesmondHansenArt) and started driving around so I could appreciate them all:
