Camouflaged Public Art

Culver City, California has put together a map illustrating the locations of all the public art pieces around the town, including Joshua Callaghan's "Almost Invisible Boxes" - utility boxes painted to disappear into the scenery.

Does camouflage count as art? The painted utility boxes are only one stop on the Culver City public art map.

Lindsay William-Ross writes, "Equally as fun are the zoetropes by Wick Alexander and Robin Brailsford, which blend into the urban landscape--so much so that as I leaned into each one to spin the top to see the figures inside take motion, I noticed that people around me were surprised to see someone interact with what looks like a simple statuary or a more utilitarian part of the environment."

"Almost Invisible Boxes"

Wont there be a concern about people walking into the "Almost Invisible Boxes" and hurting themselves. I feel like they are a lawsuit waiting to happen. They are camouflaged just enough to cause people to miss them.
