Oakland City Hall celebrates the 25th Anniversary of the San Francisco Bay Trail and Earth Day with Walking the Bay Trail: A Photo Journal, a photo exhibit and public lecture held in Hearing Room 3 on the ground floor of City Hall from 5:30-7 pm on Earth Day, April 22, 2014.
Oakland Mayor Jean Quan, who serves as a MTC commissioner, will welcome guests to the reception. Featured photojournalist and avid San Francisco Bay Trail trekker Kurt Schwabe will be on hand to describe his historic walk on more than 300 miles of the San Francisco Bay Trail in 30 days. With more than two dozen vibrant images, Walking the Bay Trail: A Photo Journal will be on display on the third floor of Oakland City Hall now through May 31.
The evening reception will feature “Blue Trail: Imagination + Innovation for Ocean + Bay Sustainability,” a presentation about Blue Trail, a visionary art-tech-science initiative. The presentation will be made by Lisa Zimmerman, a placemaking consultant; Oakland resident Jennifer Parker who is founder/director of University of California Santa Cruz’s OpenLAB; and Marisha Farnsworth, principal at Oakland-based Hyphae Design Laboratory. The trio will present some of the highly imaginative designs for interactive installations from Blue Trail’s design competition, including Hyphae Lab’s “Hyperaccumulator Remediation Barge and Event Space.”
