PA ROUTE 6 ALLIANCE RECOGNIZES AMARA GEFFEN AND STUDENTS FOR THEIR COMMUNITY ART PROJECT



PA ROUTE 6 ALLIANCE RECOGNIZES AMARA GEFFEN AND STUDENTS FOR THEIR COMMUNITY ART PROJECT

The PA Route 6 Alliance presented its first annual Heritage Partnership Award to Amara Geffen, the Director of the Center for Economical and Environmental Development and program director for the Arts and Environment Initiative at Allegheny College.

According to the Alliance, Geffen has been key in continuing one of the most innovative partnerships between her students and PennDOT – the “Sign Art Project on Route 6”.
The art project includes two installations “Read Between the Signs” and the “Sign & Flowers”, which are all made from recycled road signs. The projects are located at the interception of Rt. 6/ 322 and Rt. 102 in Meadville.

“The sign art project is one of the most recognizable community art projects along Route 6. It has been featured in many publications and continues to be one of the visual landmarks along the PA Route 6 Artisan Trail,” PA Route 6 Alliance Executive Director Terri Dennison said.

Dennison said the Heritage Partnership Award is presented to a group, person or organization that has demonstrated excellence in historic preservation, cultural preservation, interpretation, and/or education through cross-corridor thinking and interagency cooperation.

The PA Route 6 Alliance is the managing entity for the PA Route 6 Heritage Corridor. As a state heritage area, the Alliance focuses on efforts to preserve, enhance and promote the transportation heritage of one of the nation's first transcontinental highways; to sustain and enhance the small rural communities linked by the highway; and to preserve and enhance the natural, scenic beauty of one of America's favorite "road trips".

I'v seen these, they are amazing. I wish I could have pulled over to see them better, but the highway had no place to stop. We had to do a U turn and come around at it again. It's a treasure.
