River Crossing Public Art in the Washington District
In a unique collaboration, the cities of West Sacramento and Sacramento, in partnership with the Crocker Art Museum, is currently developing a master plan for public art and cultural gathering, entitled “River Crossing”, that will connect the two cities along a portion of the Sacramento River. Funding for the plan comes from the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) through the Our Town grant program, which “supports creative placemaking projects that help to transform communities into lively, beautiful, and resilient places – achieving these community goals through strategies that incorporate arts, culture, and/or design.”
The two cities will develop a comprehensive plan for public art and arts experiences that will connect downtown Sacramento and the Washington District of West Sacramento by creating pedestrian-friendly pathways linking art, entertainment, employment and recreation with new residential development along the Sacramento riverfront.
In case you missed our first outreach event on Saturday, August 4th 2018, here are some highlights. Sacramento artist Irubiel Moreno painted a beautiful mural on the doors of the Parrish garage at 422 C Street in the Washington District. For business inquiries regarding the garage, please contact Diane Richards.
