Bellevue artist helps create wraps for utility boxes on 272nd Street

Some of Covington’s utility boxes have received a makeover with new art wraps decorating the streets. More utility boxes will be wrapped in the near future as well by local business Schmitt Graphics and Designs.

The new art installations can be found on 272nd Street near the Jack in the Box and one by the Timberlane entrance, according to a city press release.

Schmitt Graphics and Designs is working on the design and installation of seven more locations in the city, including the storage container at Covington Community Park.

“The Covington Arts Commission is excited to see the projects they’ve been working on!” the press release stated.

The two recent installations were designed by Alesha Krehbiel, a freelance artist and illustrator from Bellevue. One of the wraps is titled “PNW Under the Sea” and the other is titled “Birds of Paradise,” according to the press release.

Krehbiel works mostly with water color and acrylic while also exploring digital painting. She graduated from Washington State University with a bachelor’s degree in humanities with two concentrations on fine arts and anthropology.

Be on the look out for future art installations, bringing a pop of color to Covington.
