You hold the key to El Cerrito’s Future

A team of El Cerrito artists are hard at work creating a “community art column” to represent our city’s past, present, & future.  The column will be part of a Contra Costa county-wide Arts Millennia celebration at the Concord Pavilion in July 2000, before taking up permanent residence in El Cerrito. 


El Cerrito’s column will be done in wood, metals, ceramics, clay, and paint, and will use recycled materials, including


a key from your el cerrito home or business


The keys we collect from residents and business owners will be incorporated into the art column, and the dollars we collect will help pay for the materials.  So here’s your chance to recycle an old key, help celebrate the spirit of El Cerrito, and support local public art!   We will be collecting keys at least through the end of April, but we would appreciate getting them sooner.


Mail your key and $1 dollar to:  Sustainable El Cerrito, 1711 Arlington, El Cerrito, CA  94530

(Include your name and address, so we will have a complete list of donors.)

or drop them off at:

·   City Hall, 10890 San Pablo Avenue

·   El Cerrito Chamber of Commerce, 10848 San Pablo Avenue

·   Community Center, 7007 Moeser

·   Senior Center, 6500 Stockton

·  The Glenn Custom Frame Shop, 7027 Stockton

·  Marvin Gardens Real Estate, 7502 Fairmount Avenue

or bring them with you to El Cerrito’s Earth Day--April 15, 2000:  Come to the Community Center, 7007 Moeser Lane, on Earth Day from Noon to 2:00 p.m., and see the art column as a work in progress.  You can meet some of the artists, and help us attach the keys to the column. 

There will be lots of other activities going on at the Community Center on Earth Day, including the NEAT Fair (exhibits & displays in recognition of Earthquake Preparedness Month), and a thank-you lunch for Earth Day volunteers.

Co-sponsored by Celebrating Culture & Community and Sustainable El Cerrito
