"Over 60 artists lined the sidewalks of Downtown Tehachapi bright and early to begin the annual tradition of transforming an ordinary sidewalk into an extraordinary journey of color," said Gale Caldwell, of the association. "This year’s artwork ranged from prehistoric times to insights to the future and everything in between. No matter what your artistic preference, there was something to please everyone. Several judges were overheard commenting that this was the toughest year yet, but they did manage to come up with a list of winners which is included below."
