Sierra Madre is becoming the “Place To Be” for those who still cherish good old fashioned activities and family fun. Last week, in a collaborative effort between the town’s Independent Artists and Musicians, 
The Friends of the Arts, The Creative Arts Group, Local Businesses and support from the Chamber of Commerce, the second Sierra Madre Art Walk took place. The event began as an effort to revive the city’s 
reputation as an artist’s hub and evolved into a committee that hosts an SMArt Walk the first Friday of every other month. “Through regular exhibitions in downtown Sierra Madre, the SMArt Walk’s mission 
is to increase community awareness and appreciation of the arts, and to encourage interaction between local artists and the public by providing artists with a supportive network that fosters the creative 
economy. SMArt Walk will take place four times in 2013, on the first Friday of the months of June, August, October and December.”, according to their website at 

Original works of art (including paintings, drawings, photographs, fine art prints, floral design and sculptures) were on display along with many fine crafts including furniture, pottery, handmade cards, jewelry, 
woodcarvings, and textiles. Local musicians will add to the ambiance of the wonderful summer evening. And of course, local Sierra Madre restaurants will be serving up their usual terrific fare.
