Life and Art in Charleston 106: spontaneous art walk

This afternoon we decided to put homework on hold in favor of enjoying one of the most beautiful days the Lowcountry has offered up in some time. We heard about a contest for kids downtown this week and decided to take an afternoon art walk along Broad St. It all started with a stop at Spencer Art Gallery to participate in "Name the Gorilla" contest. From now till this Friday February 21st participants can suggest a name for this Rwandan Silverback Gorilla (and guess whether it's male or female) photographed by travel photographer Harv Greenberg...

The winner will receive a 20" x 30" photo print of the Gorilla. You can stop in and vote at the gallery located at 55 Broad St. or enter online at the photographer's link here.  Good luck kids!

Next, a pit stop to refuel at Normandy Farm Bakery on Broad St...

followed by a backwards walk along Rainbow Row (why? Because they're 10 year old boys!) 

Last stop, Hazel Parker Playground for the perfect ending to an afternoon downtown...

*Check back tomorrow for more art for kids downtown!
