With the left over TieDye from the Festival, we're teaming up with our friends at the new Local Color venue in Downtown San Jose. It'll be a good time to meet new artists and become one yourself. Come learn about new things happening at Sunset Bridge.
Such great creativity!
We kicked off out launch festival with an overwhelming welcome from the community. We teamed of several community groups and city departments. With Somos Mayfair, Public Health Department of SJC, California Walks, and the Silicon Valley Bicycle Colaition, we brought together both sides of the community as well as visitors from around the city and even Sacramento (which is about a 3 hours drive away). Council Member Carrasco attended and gave a speech about the project and our ambitions. The stage also gave display to a senior folklorico dance group, A zumba instructor, A ballerina performances dancing to a classic violinist, and a solo columbian guitarist. An Aztec dance group came by the entertain and bless the space as we venture on to replenish the community and revitalize the Sunset Bridge.
Special Thanks to Magdalena Carrasco, our district council member for attending and supporting!
Gathering ideas for the #Sunset680 Pedestrian Bridge Mural yesterday at Viva Parks Mayfair. Apparently, we have many aspiring creatives in the neighborhood!
Shout out to the County Public Health Department for assisting us with this.It was a great turn out as well as a healthy community outlet
The space the bridge descends around is a large empty lot that gathers tree debris and garbage left by travelers. We organized a community clean-up with the help of Council Member Carrasco and Groundwerx, a ground keeping company that the city employs. There were many fun treasures that were found.
