ELLIOT KARLAN / FOR THE ARK
Janet Rumsey of Tiburon sits with a collection of her painted and sculpted art inside her greenhouselike backyard studio. Rumsey is a winner of the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency's Muni Art 2018 competition and will see her works lining the interior displays of 20 buses between January and April. Below, Rumsey's visual interpretation of Charif Shanahan's 'Love Poem Three Autumns Later' is among the pieces she created for display.

Tiburon artist's works to catch a ride on Muni buses

A Tiburon artist will soon have her work rolling through the streets of San Francisco.

Janet Rumsey, 27, is among five Bay Area artists chosen to create works for the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency's Muni Art 2018 competition, a project that will turn 100 Muni buses into moving art galleries beginning in January.

Rumsey and the four other artists were chosen by a public vote from a pool of 10 finalists. The theme of this year's contest, a collaboration with San Francisco Beautiful and the Poetry Society of America, is "The Art of Poetry in San Francisco." Each of the winners has been tasked with interpreting a different poem, creating eight original works that will line the interior displays of 20 buses through April.

Del Mar neighborhood mom Aubrey Erez was ecstatic when, for the first time, the annual downtown Tiburon holiday festival featured a 9-foot menorah alongside the traditional Christmas tree. On the brisk winter night Dec. 2, Erez — a Christian married to an Israeli Jew — and her three children posed for a photo in front of the display at Fountain Plaza, then posted it online to the community site Nextdoor.com.

Councilmember Holli Thier snapped the picture.

"Big thanks for finally having a menorah," Erez, whose family celebrates both Christmas and Hanukkah, said online. "It was great to celebrate both holidays as a community as they are approaching quickly."

_______

Tiburon Mayor Jim Fraser was selected by his Town Council colleagues to serve a rare second consecutive term in the driver's seat — a move described as intending to lend stability to town leadership with the arrival of two new councilmembers and the departure of a third.

At the council's Dec. 6 meeting, its last of 2017, newly elected Councilmembers Holli Thier and David Kulik were sworn into office to serve out the remaining three years of the terms of former members Frank Doyle and Erin Tollini, who resigned last spring to move out of state. Thier and Kulik had been sitting in their stead since June in appointed interim roles.
