Emerald City of Oz in downtown Burlington, was a product of the 60's and honored the politics, art, and music of that era. It was an avante guard gift boutique and a waterbed store. Its joy was to employ talented artists and allow them the freedom to flourish. And flourish they did. The result was spectacular line art, lovely paintings, iconic sculptures, magnificent murals, memorable radio and really fun street theatre. The building sparkled in multiple shades of green and glowed at night. It was a fantasy brought to life.
"A splendid time (was) guaranteed for all!"
