While passing the intersection of Seventh Street and Mandela Parkway in West Oakland, pedestrians, drivers and BART train riders can view “Unity,” the newest public art project in Oakland. A painted-steel sculpture by artist Robert Ellison, “Unity” consists of two separate, freestanding sculpture elements made of painted carbon-steel which were installed on January 8, 2009. The project was specially commissioned for the entrance plazas of the Mandela Gateway mixed-use development by the City of Oakland Public Art Program working in collaboration with the Oakland Housing Authority, Oakland Public Works Agency and Mandela Gateway developer BRIDGE Housing Corporation. The sculpture was funded through an allocation of 1.5 percent from the City’s capital project budget for Mandela Gateway area improvements.
