Ag experience in the Lower Valley continues to inspire Soto Murphy

Julia Hart/Daily Sun News

Among the hundreds of people at the Sunnyside Museum for an open house and art show debut held April 18, was Consuelo Soto Murphy. Her work will also be featured in the ongoing art show during the spring and summer months, including Cinco de Mayo Festival weekend in Sunnyside.

Her experience as a girl growing XSLQ6XQQ\VLGHZRUNLQJLQWKHÂżHOGV alongside her family, has proven to be a fertile source of inspiration for Consuelo Soto Murphy. Soto Murphy is among the artists showing their work at the Sunnyside Museum throughout this summer, Thursday through Sunday from 1 to 4 p.m. She’s looking forward to having her paintings on display here during Sunnyside’s Cinco de Mayo Festival. “I am excited to be a part of the Cinco de Mayo festivities,â€? says Soto Murphy. Besides focusing on agriculture and farmwork, Soto Murphy’s paintings also express her passion for painting the Calaveras and Dia de Los Muertos skulls. “They represent a celebration of life and also to honor our ancestors,â€? she says. “I like to paint them because they are so colorful and I can add so many things to them. “I have a skull painting with a collar of chorizo. It’s so silly and something you don’t normally see but that’s what I like about art, you can create anything you desire.â€?

Street fair configuration changes Mouth-watering combination plates of a wide assortment of Mexican street food will be for sale at the 27th annual Cinco de Mayo street fair being held in down Sunnyside May 1-3. But more than food there will also be a carnival, games, novelty and informational booths set up for street fair attendees’ enjoyment. This year the street fair will be primarily held in the 500 blocks of South Sixth Street and South )LIWK6WUHHW9HQGRUVZLOODOVRÂżOO the block on West Franklin Avenue, between South Sixth and Fifth streets, according to Pam Turner, Sunnyside Chamber of Commerce executive director. More than 100 vendors are expected to be offering products during the three-day festival, Turner said. “We have extra space planned for the 400 block of South Sixth Street, if there is a need,â€? she added. “And, we’ll be doing the best we can to accommodate our local businessmen and the through WUDIÂżF´7XUQHUVDLG Paradise Amusements, this year’s featured carnival, will be set up in the parking lot near the city pool, Turner added. The annual Charro competition will again be staged at Central Park.

The Cinco de Mayo Parade, traditionally held on Sunday of the festival weekend, will travel from Sunnyside High School on South 16th Street straight down East Edison and on out to the Sunnyside Law and Justice Center, she added. The biggest difference this year, Turner said, will be the extra measures being taken to keep the city’s new sidewalks and streets as clean as possible for the thousands of visitors expected to Ă€RRG6XQQ\VLGHGXULQJWKHZHHNend. Lots of food means lots of food-related accidents, Turner noted, adding that all food vendors are being given special instructions regarding grease and other cooking related spills. “There will be no cooking on the sidewalks, and all food vendors must have a tarp separating the streets from their cooking equipment,â€? Turner explained. “We want to keep our streets and sidewalks as clean and beautiful as possible,â€? she said. In addition to extra street security, she expects to have the Mounted Benton County Sheriff’s Posse on-hand to help monitor the parade and Charro contest. The Sunnyside Police Explorers will be in charge of keeping the garbage picked up, she added.

Finding space on the streets of downtown Sunnyside takes a lot of strategy, said Pam Turner, Sunnyside Chamber of Commerce executive director. She expects to find space for more than 100 vendors who will be in Sunnyside May 1-3 to take part in the annual Cinco de Mayo celebration.
