Alameda Community Encouraged to Share Public Art Feedback

Alameda Community Encouraged to Share Public Art Feedback

The City of Alameda has engaged national arts consulting organization Forecast Public Art to lead the process of developing the first Public Art Master Plan for the City of Alameda. The Master Plan provides direction on the planning and processes necessary to further develop, administer, and maintain a dynamic city-wide public art program that prioritizes racial diversity, creates opportunities for local artists, and represents the character and goals of the entire community.

The city wants to hear from the Alameda community. Community members are encouraged to take an online survey to identify public art priorities across the city. The survey will take around five minutes to complete and is available at www.alamedaca.gov/artsurvey. The survey will be available until Oct. 3, 2022.

Forecast Public Art is also engaging the community in a series of individual interviews, focus groups, and community engagement pop-up events. If you are interested in more information about public art, visit www.alamedaca.gov/publicart or email Walker Toma at wtoma@alamedaca.gov.

Forecast Public Art was established in 1978. The St. Paul, MN-based nonprofit organization aims to activate, inspire, and advocate for public art that advances justice, health, and human dignity.
