Public art set to be unveiled at Downtown Library

in A&E/Community

The City of Redwood City announced Thursday it will unveil public art honoring the city’s sesquicentennial on Feb. 8.

Created by photographer Brian Taylor with assistance from hundreds of community  members over the course of last year, the Sesquicentennial Redwood City Pages Public Art Installation will be unveiled at the city’s Downtown Library, 1044 Middlefield Road on Thursday, Feb. 8, at 6 p.m. The event will take place in the library’s Fireplace Room.

The art involves “a combination of 10 panels, creating 20 individual artworks for the full installation that celebrates the local community through photography,” according to the city. “The giant panels are three feet wide by five feet tall and those experiencing the public art book will be immersed in the images within its pages.”

During the last year, nearly 300 residents contributed to the art piece by attending more than 20 free paper making and cyanotype workshops. The paper created by the community was donated to Redwood CityPages project.
