St. Elmo Village is a kaleidoscope, Oz in Mid-City: multihued, mural cinder-block walls. Remnants recycled into sculptures scattered through the back yard. A fishpond created by children. Towering paintings haphazardly hung. In a transitory neighborhood marred by gangs, drugs and occasional violence, the resident artists in this one-acre enclave near La Brea Avenue and Venice Boulevard have maintained a haven of creativity for young people for a quarter-century.

The man who brought life to an eclectic little complex of 10 bungalows called St. Elmo Village was mourned last week by more than 200 of his friends, relatives, students and members of the art community in a memorial service at First AME Church. Rozzell Sykes, who died Dec. 18, a week before his 64th birthday, was remembered as a man who believed that by working with what one has, anything can be accomplished.

St. Elmo Village is an eruption of art in a regular Los Angeles neighborhood. This community art center is no bastion of culture isolated from its surroundings by white marble walls. It is a collection of bungalows, sheds and garages tied together by a rainbow of colors that seems to have touched every surface. It is a little bit of our city rescued from the isolation of single structures for single families or barracks for groups. It is a place where the community can express itself.

It's summer, the "good vibrations" season when people spell the word entertainment f-u-n----and they get away with it. There's a deluge of no-brainers--and a good number of serious undertakings, too--all beckoning us to dive right in. To assist waders, swimmers and lifeguards through the season's somewhat unpredictable waters, Calendar has set up three guided tours to help you cope with the Summer Splash. They've been created chiefly with budgetary considerations in mind, but each itinerary includes bargains and splurges alike: At the low and frequently free end of the spectrum, there's the Bargain tour for those with more time than bucks to invest in entertainment.
