Yesterday I heard about this beautiful soul, a man nicknamed Side Walk Sam. Robert Guillemin was an very accomplished artist, with a noble, and hope filled higher purpose. He empowered people to create art, on the street.
I'm very sorry to say I'd never heard of him until now. He lived in the Boston, and brought art to the street and worked hard at making art inclusive, enriching the lives people young and old alike.
Sadly Robert Guillemin died Monday January 26th 2015. Side Walk Sam was 75 year old. He will be deeply missed by many in Boston, especially those who loved him.
