YS Art Cans Project

Beth Holyoke and Käthi Seidl are proposing to upcycle the former aggregate trash cans to replace the rusted out green & yellow metal cans that were recently removed from downtown. These Art Cans will enhance YS sidewalks in a creative and at the same time useful way. By clearly labeling and locating them strategically, the new sets (trash + recycling) of Art Cans will make it easier for people to separate recycling and landfill waste and, therefore, improve waste management downtown.

Yellow Springs Station

Yellow Springs is a small town with a population of about 3,600. The Yellow Springs community is known for its recreational attractions, wonderful downtown shops and unique restaurants.

The community is culturally diverse and represents a wide range of political and social views with an emphasis on being open and friendly.

The area - and more specifically, the actual spring - was discovered around 1800 and quickly became a major attraction for those seeking its curative waters. For more than one hundred years, the town was a popular health resort with hotels, spas, boarding houses and a tavern to serve travelers on the nearby stagecoach road. With the completion of the Little Miami Railroad in 1846, Yellow Springs became the center of trade and recreation for the region.

The spring which gives our town its name still exists, but the spas, boarding houses and large hotels are long gone. The railroad has been converted into miles of biking trails for everyone to enjoy.

Today, visitors come for shopping, dining and recreation. The downtown thrives by offering an eclectic assortment of shops and restaurants. There is limited lodging available in Yellow Springs, so call in advance.
