Have you noticed the fabulous rocking chairs dotting our downtown sidewalks? It is a project sponsored by Wells Fargo, entitled "Winston-Salem Rocks!," for which local artists painted and/or decorated the rocking chairs. The artists include: Millicent Greason and Janet Eldridge White, Peter Spivak, Patrick Harris, Ginnie Conaway, Kendall Doub, Betsy Hamilton, Kim Pegram and Tim Moore. These amazing rockers will be displayed throughout downtown Winston-Salem mid-October through mid-November, afterwhich time they will be auctioned off, with the proceeds benefiting Art for Arts Sake.
