Sign Asheville up

I have an idea for a solution to the problem of the peeling street signs. The city should hand the peeled signs over to local artists (one per artist) and allow them to create artistic (but easy-to-read) versions using their own styles and methods on top of the metal signs.

This would put the street signs back into the hands of locals, and it would be a very Asheville-esque solution. It would be great to drive around Asheville and see unique and colorful signs indicating our local attractions.
