Street art project looking for participants

TICONDEROGA - The Ticonderoga Montcalm Street Partnership has announced its second annual Street Art Project. This year's theme is "Relax in the Adirondacks."

Local merchants, past sponsors, artists and anyone else who is interested in participating are encouraged to participate in this effort to raise money for downtown improvements. TMSP will be decorating the sidewalks and stores with hand painted, handcrafted Adirondack chairs in two sizes, according to the available display space. Sponsors may choose from an adult size chair by Don Farleigh or child's size chair by Jim Hall. Strictly for this TMSP project, both crafters are offering a price of $65.

"Last year's ('Soldiers on Parade' theme) was very successful and we are looking forward to our second annual Street Art Project being even bigger and better. We already have over a dozen sponsors, just upon word of mouth, signed up to participate. We will be auctioning the Adirondack chairs in the fall with all proceeds to help support TMSP projects," said Bob Dedrick, chairman of the Ticonderoga Montcalm Street Partnership's promotion committee.

For information contact Dedrick at 585-7408, Sue Rathbun at 585-9721 or Nancy Kelley at 585-7149. People can also go to www.timainstreet.org and select contact to send an e-mail inquiry.

A sponsor's check should be made out to "Ticonderoga Montcalm Street Partnership" and dropped off at Rathbun Jewelers.
