Alameda City Hall

 

Alamedans gather at City Hall last Sunday, Aug. 13, to protest the violence at the Charlottesville, Va., white nationalist rally the previous day. Three people lost their lives at Charlottesville: Heather Heyer in what most consider an act of terrorism and Virginia State Troopers H. Jay Cullen and Berke Bates in a helicopter accident while performing surveillance of the rally. 

Laura Fanning organized the Alameda protest, which more than 100 people attended, including Vice-Mayor Malia Vella and Councilmember Jim Oddie.  

 

Last year the City of Alameda released a request for proposals for physical public art. Now through Monday, June 4, finalist proposals in the $150,000 and $50,000 categories are on display on the second floor of the Alameda Main Library at 1550 Oak St. Finalist proposals are also available for review and download on the city website at https://alamedaca.gov/art_finalists.
