This from Sidekick writer extraordinaire June Wulff:


Robert Guillemin (left) has been called the Johnny Appleseed of Art and a Pavement Picasso, but we know him as Sidewalk Sam. For almost 40 years, the BU and BC alum has been making art accessible to everyone -- usually right at your feet.

Guillemin's latest outdoor project starts today about 11 a.m. in front of the Old South Meeting House. He and his Art Street team are painting an image of the Boston Tea Party, featuring the Sons of Liberty chucking tea crates from a ship into the sea. The scene should hold up all summer, but if you stroll by today, until 5 p.m., you can see the artists at work and get a free cup of Salada tea.
