Rhythmix Cultural Works has put together a #LoveOurIsland Art Walk series to bring some “Radical Beauty” to Downtown Alameda’s vacant storefronts.
The series of art exhibitions showcases a diverse range of Bay Area artists by featuring temporary art installations in empty storefront windows along the city’s Park Street business corridor. The project name stems from the premise that searching for beauty is, in itself, a radical act.
Supported by the California Arts Council, and produced in partnership with the Downtown Alameda Business Association and the City of Alameda, the Love Our Island Art Walks aim to elevate Alameda as a recognizable destination for the arts, and engage locals and visitors to the island as part of that experience.
Radical Beauty – Part 1
Celebrate the kick-off of the first installation titled “Radical Beauty – Part 1” during the 2nd Friday ArtWalk on Friday, March 9 from 6:00pm to 9:00pm. Live musical performances will accompany each window display on the night of the unveiling. The event is free and open to all.
Here’s where you can view the first round of featured art installations:
- 1320 Park Street – Jennifer Brandon (San Francisco artist)
- 1324 Park Street – Angela Hennessy (Oakland artist)
- 1326 Park Street – Jerome Rivera Pansa (Oakland artist)
The artist creations will remain on display through the month of March and beyond, depending on space availability.
