  Berkeley Marina - Artist, Joe Slusky

Hello and welcome to the Civic Arts Program for the City of Berkeley. Please see our new Public Art Map and enjoy the many and varied public art projects throughout Berkeley. You can also open the Public Art Registry in the Public Art Program section to access more information on many of the art works. Art is for everyone and public art truly reflects this outlook.

Staff and the Civic Arts Commission look forward to working with you through the Civic Arts Programs to make Berkeley an even more interesting and attractive place to live, work, shop and recreate.
