The California Mist diptych is part of Bench Projects, an artist led public art platform. Bench Project rents AC Transit bus stop advertising space to create public "Bench Galleries" throughout North Oakland. I am very excited and proud to participate in this immersive, temporary public art project.
Bench Project, was started in 2005 by founder and facilitator, Ellen Lake. and continues to create a site-responsive rotating public art program in the North Oakland neighborhood. Bench Project encourages the local community to engage more deeply with their surroundings. Support for Bench Project is provided by The City of Oakland Cultural Funding Program, Keep Oakland Beautiful, Southern Exposure, and The Clorox Company Arts Mini-grant.
