The Community Identifier Project involves designing and hand-painting the name of the community along with other simple design elements on freeway overpasses in Castro Valley, San Lorenzo and Ashland/Cherryland. In March 2017, three separate Artist Selection Committees, one for each community, met to review the qualifications and past work of a project pool of artists. The Selection Committees are comprised of community members and local artists. Each Selection Committee selected five artists who have been invited to create proposals for the Community Identifier Projects. The Community Roundtables are an important opportunity for the artists to learn more about the communities before creating their proposals. Community members are encouraged to attend to share their thoughts about the special characteristics of their community and how those should be reflected in the designs of the Community Identifiers. The events will include a facilitated group discussion and other opportunities for the community and artists to interact and share ideas and information.
