The Alameda Park & Recreation department has asked Community Action for a Sustainable Alameda (CASA) to develop an art show designed to inspire environmental awareness. CASA is seeking works in any medium that depict the harms of plastics in waterways. They will also consider any works that expose, acknowledge, celebrate and educate environmental issues.

This Earth Day event is held in upper Washington Park, 740 Central Ave., on Saturday, April 20, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The public is welcome to share  ideas, interest, questions or concerns at a community meeting for the renovation of Alameda’s Carnegie Library into the Carnegie Innovation Hall. The event will take place at The Local, 1333 Park St., Saturday, April 13, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The idea for the Carnegie Innovation Hall is to create a location that pairs educational programming and entrepreneurship with the arts, performance, music and technology. The development team needs community input and involvement to help shape their program and events.
