  • Sticky, off-the-wall art on a wall

    Several local arts supporters got in the spirit last Sunday at Chew 4 Art, which launched the Traveling Gum Wall, a collaboration of the Yellow Springs Arts Council and the JafaGirls. The public is invited to help decorate the gum wall this Saturday during the Street Fair at the Arts Council booth in the Art Park at 100 Corry Street, which is a fund-raiser for the arts group.
