Community Identifier Projects

Community Identifier Projects

The Alameda County Arts Commission invites community members in Castro Valley, San Lorenzo, and Ashland to participate in two upcoming opportunities related to the Community Identifier Projects. When completed, these projects will result in hand-painted signs on the fronts of freeway overpasses featuring the name of each community along with other simple design elements. The overall goal is to create community gateway markers that help support a positive and welcoming environment for both the community and visitors.

Please take the Community survey at  http://tinyurl.com/ztqzvan. If you are interested in participating in the Artist Selection Committee for this project please fill out an interest form at http://www.acgov.org/arts (click on “What’s New”).
