This year I participated in downtown the Downtown Racine Corporation’s Public Art Event: Hour Town. This year it features 28” decorated wall clocks made of fiberglass and they only weighs eight pounds. Evelyn’s Club Main, located at 331 Main Street, is my sponsor. They will house the clock this entire summer.

The clock will be on display starting May 24, 2010 until around labor day. Then all the clocks will be auctioned off on September 11, 2010. More information can be found at the Downtown Racine Corporation website.

The title of this is “It’s Always Time For Tea” featuring John Tenniel’s illustration of the Mad Hatter from Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland (told you I’m an unstoppable fanatic). And please, if you’re in Racine, stop by this summer and take a look!
