Stop Barn and Junction Silo. Highway Sign Sculptures

1/4 mile of amazing sculptures using old highway signs.

[struble, 07/04/2014]

The highway department art display, fed by an apparently limitless supply of old metal reflective signs, continues to add more sculptures, making return visits rewarding. We hadn't seen the Stop Barn or Junction Silo before...

This attraction was only 1 min off the 79 north. Beautiful, innovative and a wonderful way to recycle old metal signs! Stop and get gas or a cold drink and it's totally worth the 5 minute stop.

Sign mural. Penndot Road Sign Art

These two art pieces are so creative and beautiful. One is called "Read Between the Signs" and consists of a continuous mural made out of old recycled road signs. The other piece is titled "Signs & Flowers" and consists of 12 "road sign flowers" each 10'-12' feet high. All of it is made from used road signs and is pretty clever and spectacular.

We were driving into Meadville to check out the stereoscopic museum (which was sadly closed) and were delighted by this entire thing. We had to do a U-turn to go back and see all of it.

We did the same doubletake last summer when we saw the giant road sign flowers!

Along the main drag in Meadville [on route 322], you'll find a good 1/4 mile long 3D mural made out of street signs (stop signs, speed limit signs, one way, etc.). It's the fence in front of the PennDot (Dept. of Transportation) yard and across from a big shopping center. You can't miss it, especially if you are pulling out of the shopping center at night because all of the signs are reflective. There is also a garden of road sign flowers in the corner of PennDot's parking lot.

July 2008 - Photo added. Bring an appetite when you visit; we noted that the Garden was across the street from a restaurant named: "100 Items: All You Can Eat."
