A local artist whose work has been acknowledged globally is the first to use one of our city's utility boxes as her canvas.
Airdrie's Veronica Funk has added more than just a dash of colour to the corner of Main Street and First Avenue downtown.
Painting materials are being funded by a grant from 'Awesome Airdrie'.
Funk says for those who thought her work on the box was complete - not yet.
She's hoping to be finished her work on the box by September 10 or 11.
Funk, who works at the Airdrie Public Library, has exhibited her art all across Canada but loves to live in Airdrie. She sees a great time of growth for the area, and is glad to be a part of the development.
She emphasizes: "I'm so pleased that I got this opportunity to finally do my own art in my community."
