A celebration of the new art installation "Gateway to California".

The City of Alameda is hosting a celebration of the new art installation in Jean Sweeney Open Space funded by the Alameda Public Art Commission (PAC) Public Art Fund. Artist Norman Moore has created a pair of mosaic-covered columns, titled Gateway to California, that were installed this past spring. The columns symbolize Alameda’s role as a gateway for gold prospectors and the transcontinental railroad. Join the artist, PAC members, and City Staff for live music, a dance performance, and an Artist Q&A.

The event will be held on Friday, Oct. 22 from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. at the west end of the park, near the Eighth Street entrance. All are welcome; wearing a mask is recommended by CDC guidelines for crowded outdoor settings.
