Powell Street Undercrossing, Emeryville, CA
Team of M. Louise Stanley, Vickie Jo Sowell, Jeremy Hamm
With sponsorship of the City of Emeryville and its Public Arts Committee,
the artist team of M. Louise Stanley, Vickie Jo Sowell and Jeremy
Hamm have transformed the city's Powell Street Undercrossing into
a larger than life tableau featuring the citizens of Emeryville.
Brightly painted steel figures are lit against a sky blue
wall projecting dramatic silhouettes. In the reversal
of an arcade game, cars drive through the space while figures appear
and re-appear behind columns along the pedestrian walk-way between
the Marina and city of Emeryville. Emeryville citizens
featured include a policeman with bicycle, a couple referring to
their map, a runner with his dog, a father and daughter, and even
a cameo appearance by Stanley as—what else?—the artist.
