What becomes of old traffic signs when they are targeted by taggers, mangled by wayward motor vehicles or simply lose their reflectivity? Some signs suffering from these conditions — or that otherwise deemed unfit for continued service on Savannah streets — have been repurposed by Savannah artists,

The redeSIGN Art Project, on display beginning today at 312 West Broughton St., was organized by New Moon of Savannah’s Jake and Miriam Hodesh and in partnership with the City of Savannah, the Savannah Development and Renewal Authority, and The Savannah Bicycle Campaign.  The show will also serve as the venue for the monthly Green Drinks Savannah event.

Green Drinks is scheduled for May 12 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Another reception is slated for May 15, from 7-9 p.m. A portion of proceeds from sales of the redeSIGNed signs will benefit the Savannah Bicycle Campaign. More information is available here.
