This Week's Feature: the Alibi gets a makeover with Operation Art Box

Operation Art Box: We put out a call to local artists to show us how to redesign our dull Alibi distribution boxes. And as we received tons of submissions from creative geniuses, we selected the most exceptional designs and scattered them along the Central corridor. If you’re too lazy to take a tour of the boxes on foot, you can view a photo compilation in this article. And because the project has been so successful, we assure you that we’ll be doing it again. Hang on to your unrealized ideas and we’ll keep you posted.
