The community is invited to attend the unveiling of The Solacii, Downtown Fremont’s newest temporary public art installation, on Friday, June 14, at 4:30 p.m. at the corner of Capitol Avenue and Fremont Boulevard. The event will feature speeches from Fremont’s Vice Mayor Raj Salwan, City of Fremont Art Review Board Chair Barbara Meerjans, and artist Tigre Bailando. Following the event, attendees are encouraged to attend Fremont Street Eats, a local gourmet food truck event held at the Downtown Town Fair Plaza (Capitol Avenue and State Street) every Friday from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. through the end of October. Fremont Street Eats is sponsored by the Fremont Chamber of Commerce and Food Truck Mafia.
The Solacii is part of the Downtown Fremont Rotational Public Art Program, which is financed through private development fees in an effort to support the arts and create a sense of identity in Downtown. The sculpture will be on display at the corner of Capitol Avenue and Fremont Boulevard until June 2021.
