Arts in the Park to honor late teacher, artist – Benicia Herald

By Donna Beth Weilenman

Children and adults can experiment with art Saturday at City Park in an event that will memorialize the late Bonnie Weidel, a local artist who died April 18 at 84.

Another Benicia artist, Les Overlock, spoke affectionately about Weidel and her son, Ian Allen, during a Benicia City Council meeting that recognized Weidel’s service, which included sitting on the Benicia Unified School District Governing Board.

Overlock said he and Allen decided to organize an Arts in the Park tribute to Weidel this year.
