Despite cloudy weather, Columbians turned out for Fourth Friday events, including Feet in the Street on the 500 block of Locust Street . . .
Participants chalked the street with various designs . . .
. . . that began to evolve into a temporary mural.
(Could this be the rebirth of surrealism?)
About those feet - there they are now. Attendees dipped their feet in tempera paint and walked along butcher paper, trailing colorful footprints along the way.
A similar procedure was used for hands.
Sweet Life provided music in the gazebo.
Children adorned pumpkins with splashes of color.
Here are some of the finished products.
Several more to go.
Others allowed themselves be the canvas for the artist's brush.
A little later, it became obvious that the butcher paper had been well traveled.
Surfing on hay bales was a popular activity . . .
. . . as was eating ice cream on them.
Down at Through the Fire Gallery, William Chambers, in 1950s-era service station garb, invited people to participate in a performance event. In answer to the question "What's missing?" (written on a mirror at the station) one could embroider a response on a cloth dangling from a dispenser, or write in a notebook.
Further information on this project can found HERE.
The studio also featured an exhibit by artist Todd Geiger . . .
. . . as well as the usual display of glass-wrangling.
This sign recently appeared in a display window next to Hinkle's. The heading says, "The Arts @ Hinkle's."
