About the Artist/Site

Hundreds of anonymous sculptures on the ocean (bay) side of the Oakland - Berkeley Freeway at Emeryville. 1960-1980’s. Mud flats from driftwood, discarded tires, broken toys, beer cans, jugs and other rubbish — treasures of pop art, and readily come by because a high proportion of bay debris washes up there. Destroyed by bureacratic design. Time Magazine article 1984.
