[Posted by Dave Haber on Friday, 04/09/10 6:42 pm] [Full Blog] [Tweet] [Facebook]
The John Lennon 70th Birthday Sidewalk Chalk Art Celebration will be held on Saturday, October 9, 2010, John Lennon's 70th birthday, in front of the Capitol Records Tower Building at the John Lennon Hollywood Walk of Fame star, at 1750 North Vine Street, just north of Hollywood Boulevard.
Since this year will be John's 70th birthday, this event is going to be extra special, so organizers are starting now with outreach and planning. They are now seeking sidewalk chalk artists who are also fans of John Lennon and the Beatles, and they hope to hear from lots of creative artists in and around the Los Angeles area.

Artists will arrive at 9:00 AM on October 9, sidewalk chalk artists are invited to draw their John Lennon and Beatles themed art work as a loving birthday gift for John. (Artists should bring their own supply of washable chalk.)
The John Lennon 70th birthday celebration program begins at 12:00 Noon. John Lennon and Beatles songs will be played, there will be guest speakers and a special "Cake-Cutting Ceremony". The Children's Art Sidewalk Area for kids (and any young at heart John Lennon fan) will be available to draw hearts, flowers, peace symbols and "Happy Birthday John" messages.
This special birthday gathering is family-oriented and free-to-the-public, and is sponsored by the Alliance for Survival peace and environmental group.
If you're an artist and would like to particpate, please let them know as soon as possible. Contact Jerry Rubin at 310-399-1000, or email JerryPeaceActivistRubin@earthlink.net.
And don't forget, mark October 9 on your calendar now for this very special John Lennon 70th birthday celebration.
