                             10 a.m.

WHY:                    The untitled installation is a collaboration of Alameda Business Improvement District, Metro West Housing Solutions and the AARP who underwrote the mural. It is the first of three mural installations underwritten by AARP designed to increase curb appeal and utilization of seating areas along the Alameda corridor.

“Our goal with the mural program is to create a more welcoming and inviting area for our community,” said Sarah Hadsall, Assistant Executive Director at Alameda Connects. “As one of our students so eloquently put it, the murals and bench installations feel like someone cares about the community and is taking care of it.”

“We are thrilled to support the Alameda BID and enhance the quality of life for our residents through this art installation,” said Tami Fischer, CEO of MWHS. “Art enriches our lives in so many ways and we’re honored to have one of our affordable housing communities – 5800 – be a recipient of this installation. It complements our resident services program by providing another opportunity for residents to participate in and improve their community.”
