The second utility box to be painted in Ivanhoe Village is finally getting gussied up all this week by local artist Andrew Spear, on the busy corner of Orange and Virginia. The subject matter, two pretty vintage lassies coyly looking over their shoulders at the viewer, was inspired by the local history of Ivanhoe Village.

Rather than having a series of unrelated artworks dotting their neighborhood, the Ivanhoe Village Main Street District hired Spear to do transform a series of electric boxes into nods to their local history - like the first box to be painted was in honor of local theater legend Paul Wegman.

This recent addition is in honor of the areas first waterpark, Joyland, which used to grace Lake Ivanhoe on the peninsula that runs along the I-4 and is currently claimed by wilderness, raccoons and bush babies.
