Easter on the Pennsy
The event which would eventually lead to the formation of the Eastside Artist Collective. This event was organized and coordinated by Janet Montes of Playground Yoga. A group of creative neighbors came together to create an event which would create a sense of community. The event was FREE to attend and invited the community to share in a family yoga session, Easter egg hunt, and friendly sidewalk chalk competition. The event was a great success and attended by more than 30 people despite the record cold temperatures.
