Good morning, and happy Friday! I have three items of interest this morning, and I have to say – it’s quite an unusual variety.
First, the unveiling of a new art project, Birds on Broadway; second, a reminder about our free water-efficient landscaping class coming up on October 22; and third, a link to some useful videos put out by the California Department of Motor Vehicles.
Please read on, and have a great Friday.
Meet B.O.B. October Mixer Event
B.O.B. is the first of six bird sculptures to be commissioned and installed along Broadway in beautiful Downtown Redwood City along with a plaque that challenges viewers to find all of the birds. The permanent, interactive public art sculpture project entitled, “Birds on Broadway” is funded by the Redwood City Civic Cultural Commission and produced by Peninsula Arts Council. Artist Joe Pogan of Portland, Oregon created B.O.B. using a variety of found metals including spoons, nails, buttons, screws and other scrap metal. Found materials add uniqueness and charm and lend an eco-friendly characteristic to the sculpture.
The community is invited to come to the “Meet B.O.B. Mixer” on Thursday evening, October 20, from 6:30-8:30 pm at Mexquite Restaurant www.mexicanfoodredwoodcity.com/#cid=glbc located at 2616 Broadway in Redwood City.
Join the fun, meet B.O.B., and mingle with other community members, artists, and city representatives. No host cocktails.
