  • 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. Shown above are, at left, JafaGirls Corrine Bayraktaroglu and Nancy Mellon and at right, Arts Council coordinator Carole Braun, Tom Osborne and award-winning bubble-blower Lori Tuttle.

    You can call it art to chew on, or art that’s already been chewed. Whatever you call it, the Traveling Gum Wall is the most recent offbeat community art project by the village’s own Jafagirls, in collaboration with the Yellow Springs Arts Council.
