1% for art is good.

Blue Star Corner birdhouseThe city of Emeryville has extended the 1% for art program to residential buildings, which means that now everything built in the city has dedicated funds for public art.

The most recent installation to be dedicated is a set of modern birdhouses by artist Walter Craven. There are seven of them, all different, and they run along a greenway between two residential buildings.

Mighty fine dwellings for birds. Hopefully songster residents will move in soon.

It’s amazing what 1% for art can do for a community.
