The Magic Tree Bookstore at 141 N. Oak Park Ave. invites young artists to come watch muralist, Christine Baumbach paint vines and a tree on the wall on Thursday July 26th starting at 10 a.m.
Ms. Baumbach painted a beautiful leafy scene at the front of the store many years ago. Recently, Magic Tree has been adding color, moving sections of books and making other changes. The window seat, which itself has undergone a makeover, will face the newest magic tree.
Ms. Baumbach, known for her many fine murals around the area, has thrown the door open to aspiring artists. Come see her sketches of the bookstore projects and watch her create as well as ask questions.
