Sidewalk Show '07: A Blend of Quality and Unique Works
RICHLAND, Wash.-With Water Follies this weekend, the city of Richland is having its annual Sidewalk Show.
Today, thousands of people flocked to Howard Amon Park to window shop and purchase all kinds of art. Everything from paintings to handbags to pottery accessories were for sale.
One woman told us she bought five paintings yesterday and another three today.
"We like to have work that is unique in our home," says Sandy Nuxoll-Willard. And so when you come here you know stuff is going to be unique, rather than some commercial thing you'll see at a store. The artists created these themselves so they're limited edition.
Each concession stand is donating portions of their proceeds to charities. The Sidewalk Show is the single largest economic event for Richland. Event organizer, Allied Arts, says $75-80,000 dollars have been raised in years past.
