The Civic Center Art Exhibition is a public art project of the Berkeley Civic Arts Commission. Selected works are on every floor of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Civic Center at 2180 Milvia. It was curated by the Berkeley Art Center and Kala Art Institute. A Selection Committee composed of city staff, Civic Arts Commissioners and the two curators selected art work from artists who either live or work in Berkeley. Each selected artist was given a stipend and a Celebration event is planned for this fall.
