The woman behind those quirky installations on Webster. Her installations, and her studio and her quirky collage art.

Holy Hubert, The Christian World Liberation Front, Dick York and the Free Church, and the Hare Krishnas – the religious figures on Telegraph in the late 60s and early 70s.
A collection of measuring devices, displayed publicly and in many cases used as lawn art.
Mail boxes, weathervanes, and lawn art. Cows and pigs. That about says it all.
I built a post about artistic depictions of palms around several palms on a cinder block wall at the Webster Poolside Apartments. It’s a reach, but I love the Poolside palms.
Neon at night – Telegraph Avenue, Bancroft, and Durant. That’s it. Simple, calming, urban, quirky.

Red Sun Rising was radical collective on Parker Street in the 1960s. This Berkeleyside post from January 29, 2015, features about ten of the many posters collected by Red Sun Rising members.
