Blue Box Renaissance

The “Blue Box Renaissance” project was initiated in 2009 in collaboration with Devon Stout, Distribution Manager for the Meadville Tribune. It is intended to celebrate community, promote citizen engagement, encourage reading and literacy, and enhance Meadville’s Urban Art Trail.. The artistically transformed newspaper distribution racks have been developed through an ongoing  College – Community Collaboration. To date 16 Blue Boxes have been completed and placed in designated locations in downtown Meadville and, in many cases, serve as markers of Mill Run’s flow underneath the city streets. Pictured here is a rack being painted at a Second Saturday Celebration at Meadville’s historic Market House during the summer of 2011.  During the current summer 4 Allegheny art interns will work with 3 Meadville area high school student-artists to complete an additional 12 racks.
