Arcata, Ca., (KIEM) Arcata Main Street Plaza was blooming in color Saturday. Blue, pink, yellow and more bled a colorful masterpiece onto the streets sidewalks in spirit of this year’s Pastels on the Plaza, a benefit for Northcoast Children’s Services.
Businesses were invited to purchase a square of sidewalk to be transformed into a work of art by local artists willing to donate their time and creativity to this unique community event. Some artists freestyled their art while others had a specific cause or business they wanted to support but no matter which designed was chosen all artist agreed that pastels on the plaza is a good time.
Northcoast Children’s Services has partnered with local businesses and artists to transform the sidewalks of the Arcata Plaza into a colorful art gallery on the first Saturday in October.
