Good Things Come out of Art’s Garage

In Culture Bluffs, Open Season on July 18, 2011 at 10:43 pm

The renovated Elberta sign tells you where to go.

Art Melendez, a cartoonist, illustrator, graphic designer, educator, and relatively recent full-time Elbertian, has signed on to a lot of local activities: Parks and Rec, the Elberta Arts Council, the Solstice Committee, and the Elberta Alert editorial team. But his most recent standout project has been renovating the Elberta sign, which was reinstalled in its traditional spot a couple of months ago by Art and Ken Bonney.

As long as I have you here looking at Art’s garage, I may as well take the opportunity to mention that Art and his wife, Christine, are having a sale out of said space this coming Saturday from 9 am to 3 pm….

OK, no clothes, but a shop vac! I hope this doesn’t mean Art isn’t planning on messing up his garage anymore, because we sure need him to take on more community projects. Whether or not you can make the sale, when you drive by the new old sign, take a look and note the freshness! And appreciate the Art.—Emily Votruba

  1. Art and Christine are a great addition to your community. Hope the sale is a huge success!
