TICONDEROGA-The second annual Ticonderoga street art project can be seen downtown.
Two new chairs have been painted and are on display in the window of Rathbun's Jewelers. Two other chairs are on the sidewalk in front of Burleigh's Luncheonette.
The Ticonderoga Montcalm Street Partnership invites people to "Relax in the Adirondacks."
"We encourage all our local merchants, past sponsors, artists and anyone else who is interested to participate in this exciting project in an effort to raise money for many worthwhile downtown improvements," said Bob Dedrick, TMSP promotions committee chairman. "We are decorating the sidewalks and stores with hand-painted, hand-crafted 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 special reduced price of $65.
"Last year's 'soldiers' art project was very successful and we are looking forward to our second annual street art project being even bigger and better," Dedrick said. "We already have over 30 sponsors signed up to participate. We will be auctioning the Adirondack chairs in the fall with all proceeds to help support TMSP projects."
People seeking more information or wishing to participate can contact Dedrick at 585-7408, Sue Rathbun at 585-9721 or Nancy Kelley at 585-7149. Information is also available online at www.timainstreet.org.
A sponsor's check should be made out to Ticonderoga Montcalm Street Partnership and dropped off at Rathbun Jewelers.
