The once bland, gray boxes, that stand near busy intersections, are now displayed with Oklahoma themed art.

“The City would like to thank Ms. Baker and her students for their hard work and Pizza Hut for generously providing
lunch for the artists,” a city spokesperson said.

“I am hoping that we will be able to keep doing work in the city,” Baker said.
