We are incredibly excited to share our proposed "Lightcloud" lighting and art concept with the Oakland community on Thursday, Jan 25, 2018. See the invitation below. Everyone is welcome!
Re: Proposed Lighting and Art Concept for the I-880 Madison Street Underpass
Neighbors and Friends,
In response to community input during approvals of the Jack London 4th & Madison construction project, Carmel Partners hopes to satisfy our Public Art obligation by creating a unique environmental art piece under the I-880 underpass at Madison Street to enhance the pedestrian experience connecting Jack London to Chinatown and Lake Merritt. Carmel Partners conducted a RFP process to a group of artists with past experience working in similar environments and with similar public agencies, and selected Future Cities Lab for their experience, Oakland connections, and most importantly their awesome concept. An image of the initial concept is attached.
We would like to get neighbor and community input on the art concept and so will host a public community meeting for neighbors and the Oakland community to learn more and provide comments and suggestions to the artist team. Please join us if you can.
DATE: Thursday January 25
LOCATION: 501 Madison Street (4th and Madison Construction Trailer, beneath the I-880 underpass on the west side of Madison Street)
Light refreshments will be provided
