Starting Sunday and lasting through October, the region's biggest public art project will begin to take shape. By Mid-May "Summer of Color" will have turned 158 lifeguard towers on 31 miles of California coast into vibrant floral pieces of public art. On Sunday, volunteers will paint tower railings with one of five colors: yellow, rumba orange, sweat pea, Toronto blue, and crocus petal purple. If you want to volunteer, sign up here.
