June 10: Walking Tour, A Tiny Town with an Outsized Trove of Public Art, 10 AM

Led by Sandy Friedland

For a city on land of just 1.2 square miles, Emeryville has an unusually rich collection of public art, both along its sidewalks, in public and private courtyards, and in the lobbies of some of its newer buildings. Join us on a tour of the more notable installations on a flat, 2.5-mile route through this town, home to Pixar, Clif Bar, Peet’s and Jamba Juice—not to mention Rudy’s Can’t Fail Cafe. Along the way, we’ll learn some of the fascinating history of this colorful little town, which Earl Warren once called the “rottenest city on the West Coast.”

Sign up on Eventbrite, by mail, or in person at the museum.
