1967 Emeryville MUDFLAT ART Long Gone San Francisco Bay Waterfront Sculptures
MUDFLAT ART by William Jackson
Published by The Carson Jackson Fund, Verna Baxter, Lino Meiorin, Berkeley, California, 1967. First edition. Illustrated card covers, side staple bound, 9" x 6", 12 unnumbered pages, illustrated with 7 full page color photographs and one in text color photo. VERY GOOD Condition: some wear to the covers, internally signs of age and use, otherwise a respectable copy of this elusive publication about the old Emeryville Mudflat Sculptures.
In the 1960s the Emeryville Mudflats were a mere wasteland of space by the side of the Eastshore Freeway fronting San Francisco Bay. After some initial ad hoc sculpture popped up, the Mudflats evolved into a vibrant highly visible open air museum for a unique form of public art works. This amazing space of free expression lasted for about 30 years. Many of the sculptures are now in museum collections.
