Rhythmix Cultural Works and the City of Alameda present Creating Our Future, a public art installation and virtual reception celebrating the renaming of Alameda’s park formerly known as Jackson Park.
During the free Virtual Reception, participating artists will share their inspirations and significance of their work. Local historian, Rasheed Shabazz will provide a brief history of the park and context regarding the renaming effort. Also joining the conversation will be Alameda’s Vice Mayor, John Knox White, to share his perspective on the city’s hopes for the future of Alameda.
Bringing the artist’s voice to the renaming of Alameda’s first park formerly known as Jackson Park, Rhythmix Cultural Works invited artist Stephen Bruce to curate a temporary art installation to replace the park’s signage during the renaming process. In this important moment of change, the installation will bring together the work of six different African American artists, Stephen Bruce, Abi Mustapha, Andrea McCoy Harvey, Ashlei Reign, Tiffany Conway and Zoë Boston, to create a vision of our future.
The installation will be on display November 14, 2020 – April 30, 2021 (at the corner of Park Ave & Encinal Avenue: 2430 Encinal Avenue) and is made possible with funding from the City of Alameda and a California Arts Council Creative California Communities grant.
