The City Public Art Program will host an interactive media event, Code:ART, Oct. 7-9, 2021 that will offer an opportunity for our community to experience engaging artworks together, while offering adequate space for everyone to participate within their personal comfort zone.
The seven installations each have a unique interactive component utilizing light, sound, and projections to animate underutilized spaces downtown.
Public Art staff and Commissioners will conduct two public tours of all intervention sites each evening.
They are also seeking partner businesses offering special experiences or events during the festival, as well as volunteers to assist with the event.
To volunteer, become a festival partner, or for more information about the event and the installations, please call the City of Palo Alto Public Art Program at (650) 617-3517.

Stroll the beautiful Art Center grounds, meet the artists, and find inspiration in amazing works for the home and garden.
Art makes everything better
As you can see, I’m pretty excited about seeing my artwork popping up on billboards to promote ArtSpan San Francisco Open Studios this year, back with all kinds of events from September 16 to Nov. 21, 2021. Check my What’s Up page for event details.
To kick off the artful season I will be hanging out at the Zuri shop on 1902B FILLMORE STREET on Saturday, Sept. 11, 2021 from noon to 5 p.m. taking profile photos of any of you wanting to join my pool of faces for the artwork of my Inner Worlds series. I love including pieces of Zuri textiles in my collages and hope to photograph you trying on your favorite Zuri wonders.
Hope to see you next weekend, meanwhile take good care!
