Community Roundtable: Meet the Artists

Submitted By Rosa Valdez

Community members are invited to attend the Community Roundtable Meetings with artists selected as semi-finalists for three Community Identifier Projects in unincorporated Alameda County: Castro Valley, San Lorenzo, and Ashland/Cherryland. Each meeting will be focused on the Community Identifier for that particular site.

Community members will have the opportunity to share their thoughts about the special characteristics of their community and how those should be reflected in the designs of the Community Identifier. Community members may also contribute ideas through the online survey available at The survey responses will be shared with the artist semi-finalists making proposals for the projects.

The Community Identifier Projects involve designing and painting the name of the community along with other design elements on freeway overpasses. The overall goal is to create community gateway markers that help support a positive and welcoming environment for both the community and visitors. Practicing, professional artists will be selected through an open competitive selection process to design and paint the Community Identifiers. Projects will have multiple steps involving community engagement and feedback as well as reviews by local community groups, the Members of the Alameda County Arts Commission, the Alameda County Board of Supervisors and the California State Department of Transportation (Caltrans). The Arts Commission encourages participation from community members.

Community members who want to receive updates about the projects should send an email to to be added to the Arts CommissionÕs email list.
