Weekly Alibi is currently accepting submissions for this year's Operation Art Box, which last year saw more than a dozen Alibi boxes transformed into engaging works of street art. Not all newspaper boxes are created equal, however. Although they must be placed in a sheltered area, I am particularly fond of the "cage box" because they are unusual and cast interesting shadows. They're edgy. Why not turn it into a vintage birdcage, or a traveling circus cage wagon? The cage box could be used to make a statement about America's staggeringly high incarceration rate. A memorial to the 1980 New Mexico State Prison riot wouldn't be hard to imagine.

Deadline for submissions has been extended to July 19th.
