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

Neat place to stop and see if you're in the area. We actually made our route based on this attraction, but glad we did - not something you see every day, especially if you appreciate art and recycled art. We parked in the PenDOT parking lot and walked along the grass for about half the corner of the artwork.

I never knew that this was made by the Allegheny Collage students until I went to visit my grandmother and she told me! Nice job on this!

Only in Meadville, PA will you find a diorama fo the area made of carefully bent and constructed to show the interesting sights available in the area. Folks frequently stop to take pictures of the long line of fence decorated cleverly with road signs.

Don't miss this art display. It's right off the Meadville, PA exit of Interstate 79. You can drive right by and then turn around and drive past again and get right back on the highway. All made from road signs from the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation. It is amazing. Adults and kids will LOVE it.

I absolutely love driving by this stretch of Route322! The whimsical artwork of life in Crawford County is so creative and accurate. Thanks to Alleghany College Art Department and PennDOT for collaborating on recycling old signs and adding an interesting twist to boring fences.
