318 Commons is a fairly new apartment building that houses medical residents for Mayo Clinic
The university and Mayo clinic are only a few block from the apartments,
which makes for a short walk!
On saturday, the neighbors (downtown Rochester) came out for a fun little event
to help welcome the incoming freshman to UMR
The chalk was provided
The artwork was to focused on the theme of "welcome"
Kids, student and adults came out to show their artistic flair
I stopped to visit with this young man, he is a Junior are UMR and quite the chalk artist if i go say so myself. He is from Texas and has no family in Rochester. He was really getting into the blending of colors, when I asked him if he was about finished, he said, "not even close"
I didnt stay till he was done.
Husband and wife team working on a little farm scene
A soccer ball?
"Nolan is awesome" I had to chuckle :)
Bright & colorful
It's amazing the things that go on in your city....
I happen to see a little blurp in the newspaper about this and thought I would check it out.
I kind of wish I would have gone a little later, I would have liked to see Mr. Texas's finished work and I think there would have been many more to look at.
All the same it was a fun filler for a quiet Saturday afternoon.
