Mara Cherkassky transforms phone booths into artwork

Historian Mara Cherkassky is working with sculptor Charles Bergen on a downtown call boxes project.

    Relics of a bygone era are set to become unique street art in Washington, DC.

    Call boxes became increasingly redundant in the mobile phone era.

    But an historian is hoping to give the boxes a new lease of life and celebrate the women of Washington, DC at the same time.
