One of the things I love about Seattle is there's art on pretty much every street! Back East in my hometown, if someone saw you with a can of spray paint, they'd assume you were a vandal and most likely call the cops. Here, in the Emerald City, the art is appreciated. 

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:
