Announcing the boxART! Program
boxART! is the City of Fremont’s program which provides for the painting of colorful murals on the nearly 170 utility boxes located at each signaled intersection throughout Fremont. The program is much appreciated by residents and visitors, and the city has recently announced Phase 3 of the program. Artists whose work is chosen and completed will receive a $650 stipend.
Induz Passport to World Arts – 2019 Dates!
2019 dates for this excellent hands-on geography and art program for younger children are:
October 4, 10, November 2, 16 at the Fremont Main Library. We’ve held this program for the last few years and each year we have more people attending! Children love learning about a different country and its unique art during each of the 4 sessions, then use materials provided to create their own version, and have their Induz ‘passports’ stamped with that country’s stamp.
This excellent program is provided free of charge, due to generous sponsorship by the Fremont Main branch of Alameda County Library, INDUZ and the FCAC. Featured projects in previous years included African Masks, Egyptian Portraits, Oaxacan/Mexican Alebrijes, and Turkish Hamsa Hands.
Stay tuned for more information!
