City of Berkeley Public Art Program and the Civic Arts Commission present
2017-18 Civic Center Art Exhibition

On view at Martin Luther King, Jr. Civic Center
2180 Milvia Street, Berkeley, CA

Each year the City of Berkeley celebrates the richness of artistic production within the Berkeley community with the Civic Center Art Exhibition. This year’s exhibition is produced through a collaborative effort between Kala Art Institute, the Civic Arts Commission and the City of Berkeley Civic Arts Coordinator. This year, 30 Berkeley-based artists were selected through a juried process for exhibition in the Martin Luther King Jr. Civic Center Building. The work is distributed throughout publicly accessible areas on six floors and will be displayed for one year. 

To view the exhibition, please call Mary Ann Merker at 510-981-7533, or Chrystal O'Malley at 510-981-7539 to schedule a time. If possible, please review the document linked below and let staff know the location of the artwork and name of the artists you wish to see on your visit.
