My husband and I actually drive by on accident. The GPS was way off (wish we had read the reviews that stated so first). Alot to take in because of traffic. Too cold to get out and walk. It was really cool to see though. I love seeing waste being repurposed!

I love the sign art along the arterial (322) entering Meadville. Each piece represents something about the area - our farms, our annual hot air balloon races, the college, our fondness for gardens... What a great way to reuse old road signs.

This is truly a work of art done by someone with real talent. Very cool use of old road signs. We just happened to drive by and noticed this, what a huge display. Public works yards are usually an unappealing parking lot of trucks and equipment, this yard is part of an art exhibit!! Someone has vision.

Cool to see, in Meadville don't follow trip advisor address you will end up four miles outside of town and will not be able to find it.

It took a while to realize I was looking at old road signs, when I first saw this display on Route 322 not far from the Meadville, Pennsylvania exit off Interstate 79. The "wall of art" depicting everything from a roller coaster to a hot air balloon is a collaboration between Allegheny College's Center for Economic and Environmental Development and... More

We pulled off 90 and drove past this art installation. It is whimsical and a fun diversion. You can easily see it from the road. We used the Home Depot parking lot to turn around and get a better view. There are some giant flowers made out of signs on the North East corner just past the larger installation. There... More

Nice bonus driving along that stretch of highway. Artwork made out of recycled road signs by local college students. Very neat!

Seeing how I live in Meadville and have passed by these almost every day of my life, I guess I don't appreciate them as much as our visitors.. :-/ but they are quite creative and quite unique. And you will not find anything like them anywhere else. This work of creative ingenuity is courtesy of pur very creative Allegheny College... More

this is just a fun kooky landmark at the highway building with these fun art installations beside rte. 322...makes trips up to I79 more interesting. It isn't something you visit, just pass on your way by.

This fence of scenes made from old road signs is amazing. Do not just drive by as you cannot appreciate the scope of this display. Park the car and walk the entire length…it should only take about 30 minutes…it’s incredible. Somebody is very talented and we think it’s great that PennDOT chose to use their old signs in this manner.... More
