The Council is probably involved in getting the art on the utility boxes, have a look around their website to see if there is a contact for the arts programme.
My daughter took part in the Hamilton City public art project for utility boxes. We did the traffic lights control box by the Innes Common netball courts on Forest Lake road. The council pulled the funding and laid off the co-ordinator about 5 years ago.
From Herald, same article. It has flown some interesting sorties in its time, and the final trip will certainly not be a dull one for the last complete Avenger torpedo bomber in NZ. The folding wing aircraft has been a display piece at Hamilton Te Rapa air force base since retiring from active duties in 1959. Now someone has decided to give it a place of honour at the RNZAF historical centre in Wigram, Christchurch. It is perhaps sad that after such a colourful career including WW 2 action in the Pacific theatre with 30 and 31 Squadrons and duty as a target-towing plane the last trip for the Avenger bomber is not to be by air. The plane was brought to Auckland by transporter yesterday and from Jellicoe Wharf was loaded into the frigate Waikato. Her retirement cruise as a guest of the navy will see the Avenger delivered to Christchurch next week. At Wigram she will be restored to display condition.
