    The participants also ate donuts (and apples), drank coffee, and listened (while painting),  to Tim’s band, Sunday’s at Five ( Mayor Seiler joined the band to sing Simon and Garfunkel’s – the Boxer, then immediately asked us to burn the audio tapes …

     There was also a contest for the best work in Sidewalk Chalk Art, $100 prize, judged by Mayor Jack Seiler, Commissioner Charlotte Rodstrom, and City Manager Lee Feldman. 

                  

     The event was a kick-off of a new Art Program for the 13th Street corridor, where $30,000 will be spent on Public Art. The area already has many sculptures and murals adorning it.
