Repurposed newspaper boxes are transformed into mini art galleries in Allston

Looking to decorate blank walls on a budget, but avoid the trite and treacly prints on parade at big box stores? Art in Print is the answer. For just 25 cents, you can buy a limited-edition newsprint poster by a local artist, straight from any of four bright blue bins dotting Western Avenue in Allston. This is the third volume of prints put forth by Zone 3, a Harvard-bred initiative to breathe artistic energy into the area. Thirty different prints created by 10 local artists, including Vanessa Irzyk, Laura Pichardo, Monique Aimee, and Cedric Douglas are currently available. Bins are located between 168 Western Ave. and 415 Western Ave., Allston, zone3westernave.com
