Visions Student’s Art Brightens Brentwood

If you’ve been to Brentwood, you may have noticed the beautiful artwork that decorates a number of their public utility boxes. What you may not know is that one of these boxes was decorated by Visions Home School student Emma S.!

“I was honored to be a part of the 2018 Brentwood Utility Box Project,” says Emma. “[For my piece], I imagined a brilliant sunset over a dusty Brentwood ranch – the smooth horizon, and the soft sand that plumed around the hooves of horses at play.”

Emma’s submission was selected along with fifteen other artists from the Brentwood area. She began painting her box in September and finished just before Halloween 2018. As part of her first outdoor art project, Emma had the opportunity to chat with other artists and interested passersby who stopped to admire her work.

Today, Emma’s piece sits as part of a city-wide art project that brings beauty to Brentwood. Next time you’re in the neighborhood, stop by the intersection of Sand Creek Road and Business Center Drive to see Emma’s artwork in its full-sized glory.

“It was such a privilege to share my artwork with the City of Brentwood,” Emma says. “I will always consider this piece one of my greatest achievements.”
