Art is everywhere in Davis
Here are some recent
additions and trends
By Wendy Weitzel
You don’t have to wander far to witness
Davis’ creative forces. The city is blooming with
vibrant art, with murals, sculptures and galler-
ies galore; live music and theatre abound.
Rachel Hartsough, the city’s arts and culture
manager, said grant money from the California
Arts Council and increased city funding for the
arts is helping expand the scope, boost the out-
reach to cultivate Davis as an arts destination.
“We have an amazing wealth of cultural
resources for a community of our size,” she said.
Mayor Robb Davis is excited about the recent
developments. “It is heartwarming to see our
local artists and community working together
to change the very face of our city streets,
enhancing our neighborhoods through
community collaboration, and increasing our
visibility as a creative destination in the region

You See Davis

UC Davis’ first public art guide —
don’t be an egghead, print one!
It’s the rare student or visitor at UC Davis who doesn’t take time to
pose for a photo with one of the Eggheads on campus.
But the egg-shaped, giant bronze heads by the longtime faculty
member Robert Arneson are only part of the art that can be seen while
strolling the campus. Art history graduate students Arielle Hardy, Justina
Martino, Piper Milton and Brittany Royer have made these pieces even
more accessible by creating the first guide to UCD’s public art.
The guide gives insights into very visible artworks like the Eggheads
and former art professor William Wiley’s “What’s It All Mean” gong at the
Manetti Shrem Museum of
Art, along with nearly hidden
pieces.

The Arboretum
Note: The Arboretum is currently undergoing a
project to maintain and enhance the waterway to
address sediment build-up, engineer features that
will add movement to the water, update pathways
to bring them up to accessibility standards and
address other safety concerns. Some areas will be
unavailable due to construction this year.
publicgarden.ucdavis.edu/waterway
The UC Davis Arboretum and Public Gardens are open 24 hours a day,
every day of the year, and there is no charge for admission. The plants
in the 17 gardens and collections of The Arboretum represent a living
museum and the university’s commitment to sustainable growing
practices that reduce the use of water, energy, and chemical inputs and
support native pollinators, birds, and beneficial insects.
Arboretum paths are popular with walkers, joggers and bicyclists. The
main path is a 3.5-mile loop.
The lawns at the west end near Peter J. Shields Grove are perfect for in-
formal games and picnics. Picnic tables are located behind Putah Creek
Lodge and in the Redwood Grove.
Parking is available at several visitor parking lots along the length of
the Arboretum. Parking is free on weekends and holidays and costs $9
per car on weekdays. Permit machines in the visitor parking lots accept
bills, coins, ATM and credit cards. For the safety of visitors and wildlife,
dogs must stay on leash in the Arboretum. arboretum.ucdavis.edu
