Oak Knoll Public Art Program

SunCal recognizes the value of public art and embraces the objectives of the Oakland Public Art Ordinance. It is our goal to engage our community to help us create a sense of place, a focal point and a destination—all of which will contribute to the identity of the Oak Knoll Community. We involved the art community as early in the planning stage as possible so the selected artists / artist teams could develop proposals and designs that will be seamlessly integrated into the larger Oak Knoll Community plans.

In April 2016, SunCal commissioned the creation of a public art master plan for the Oak Knoll Community, located at the former Naval Medical Center in Oakland. The stakeholders discussed budget obligations, potential sites, public access and the artist selection process. The public art master plan and accompanying website were launched in August 2016, identifying five sites that will employ the call for entry process to seek qualified artists: Oak Woodland, Creekside Entry Park, Retail Village Plaza, Oak Knoll Public Amenities and the Oak Knoll Vehicle Bridge. Artist selections were conducted from September 2016 to June 2017 through panels consisting of many local artists, curators and community representatives.

We are excited to begin installing the first phase of the Oak Knoll Public Art master plan, which will include installations on the Oak Knoll Vehicle Bridge and in the Oak Knoll Creekside Entry Park near the entrance to the Oak Knoll community.
