Local Artist In Search of JELL-O Boxes for Storefront Display

No More Empty Pots has been chosen by local artist and NMEP advocate, Shirley Neary for a featured window display in Midtown Crossing’s Miracle on Farnam this holiday season. She is in need of over 1,000 JELL-O boxes to create this masterpiece.

What is Miracle on Farnam?

Miracle on Farnam is held each holiday season on the main strip of Midtown Crossing. Local artists are given storefront windows to create exciting visuals. From November 17th to January 1st, the community is invited to do a walking tour and vote on their favorite display!

This year’s theme is “The Perfect Gift.”

Help Shirley’s Vision Come Alive!

Shirley’s design is inspired by a recipe book that she’s had for a long time. “The Joys of JELL-O 11th Edition” debuted sometime in the late 1960’s or early 1970’s. During this time, JELL-O dessert making was at an all-time high. Making and sharing JELL-O with others was a way for neighbors to spread happiness and joy. With this display, Shirley hopes to do just that.

What Shirley Needs:

  • 1,000 RED, YELLOW and GREEN flavored
    JELL-O boxes
  • 3oz. or 6oz. in size
  • NO pudding boxes please

Boxes can be dropped off at the No More Empty Pots Office (8511 N. 30th St) or Prairie Life Midtown (200 S 31st Ave #4101).

Looking to get even more involved? Shirley could really use the help of six volunteers to design and build the display. For more information on volunteering, please contact Shirley at shirley435@aol.com.

    • Hi Vikki!

      These are great questions. The boxes can be full or empty. They will be making some JELL-O molds. Whatever is left over will be donated and the remains of the boxes will be recycled. Also, if you are interested in a volunteer opportunity on this project, you may contact Shirley at shirley435@aol.com.

      Thanks!
