Thanks from Island City Waterways


On behalf of Rhythmix Cultural Works, we would like to extend our sincere gratitude to everyone who made Island City Waterways such a monumental success. Nearly 2,000 community members and students joined Rhythmix for one or more of 11 shows at Crab Cove between May 18 and 20. The event was an extraordinary art and history performance that we hope continues to inspire those who attended. We truly appreciate receiving the City of Alameda’s first cultural arts award from the Public Art Fund that helped make this event possible.

A big thanks goes out to all of our performers, artists, volunteers, sponsors, in-kind donors, board, staff and community advisory board members for their support and generosity. 
In addition, we’d like to thank the Alameda Public Art Commission, City of Alameda staff, Alameda historians Eric J. Kos and Dennis Evanosky, East Bay Regional Park District, The Epiphany Dance Theater and Maze Daiko. The East Bay Community Foundation, the

Fleishhacker Foundation and the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation helped provide funding, along with sponsors: OMM, Inc., Alameda Landing-Catellus, Alameda Municipal Power, Pacific Union International, Star Harbor-Tim Lewis Communities, Dragonfly Property Services, Eyewise Optometry, AEC Living and Alameda Marina. 

We couldn’t have done without: Alameda Marketplace, Alameda Natural Grocery, Bay Ship & Yacht, Fireside, Poppy Bank, Carolyn West, Yankwich & Associates and Bridge Bank. Alameda Magazine, Alameda Sun and Alameda Journal provided media sponsorship, and Nina Sazevich, Clif Bar and Company, Julie’s Coffee and Tea Garden and Semifreddi’s all deserve our thanks as well.
