Fine Artist Takes To The Street
Title sponsor Lockheed Federal Credit Union participates in Art Festival
What do you get when you cross a Street Art Festival, credit union title sponsor, and a local artist? “A rollercoaster for the eyes,” local artist Randall Williams said.
Lockheed Federal Credit Union (LFCU) announced today that it is the title sponsor of the Street Art Festival on September 29th and 30th in Newhall. This sponsorship includes the Featured Artist square in which local artist and 19-year LFCU member Williams will design and paint the scene with chalk.
“The scene I’m designing flows; it’s like a rollercoaster for the eyes,” said Williams.
When creating the street art scene, first, Williams sketches the design. To become more familiar with the drawing, he then paints the scene on canvas. At that point, he’s ready to take to the street with his chalk.
“This community event has a rich history in Santa Clarita and we’re fortunate to be a part of it,” said James Davis, LFCU Branch Sales Manager for Bouquet Canyon. “We’re proud to have Randall (Williams) paint our square.”
Branch staff will greet festival-goers at the LFCU booth, 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Saturday, September 29, and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday, September 30.
Williams, owner of Randall’s Art in Burbank, participates in about 10 chalk festivals a year, and is very involved in the local community and the art scene. He volunteers countless hours for community and children’s programs, and teaches dozens of art students, ages 5 to adult, in several venues.
