On February 22, KQED visual arts editor Sarah Hotchkiss and KQED Arts contributor Lakshmi Sarah published an account of their day trip to visit Vallejo's vibrant and varied arts community. Seeking to find out "if Vallejo offers a viable alternative to eking out art practices" outside of San Francisco and Oakland, where housing and studio rents are pushing out artists.  After several stops, the authors attest to have "barely scratched the surface," declaring that "Vallejo is the burgeoning art community you're looking for." The duo visited and/or featured:
Super Classy Publishing [], where owners Andy and Katie Rottner make meticulously hand-crafted cloth-covered boxes and limited edition artist books.
Odd Fellows San Pablo Lodge #43 [], the city's longstanding chapter of the community-minded social club.
The Hub [], a multi-purpose space hosting workshops and events, selling artists' wares and providing a gathering space for arts enthusiasts of all ages.
Vallejo Art Walk [], which is held the second Friday of every month brings artists, food vendors, musicians and locals to the downtown blocks, joining forces with 31 nearby businesses.
Mare Island Shoreline Historic Preserve [], host of the annual San Francisco Bay Flyaway Festival
Re:Sound [], where sound artist and special education teacher Jen Boyd hosts concerts bringing sound artist luminaries into a cavernous concrete building formerly used by the Navy to store munitions.
Empress Theatre [], a fully restored and state-of-the-art 471-seat music and performance venue in the downtown arts & entertainment district.
Coal Shed Studios on Mare Island [], where 18 artists pursue their craft and several additional studios are currently under renovation to host retail shops, restaurants and light industrial/manufacturing.
McCune Rare Book & Art Collection [], which houses rare and unique books, printing equipment and binding equipment.
Mare Island Brewing Company [] with its taproom in the Ferry Building referencing Mare Island's historic past and maker present.

Shoreline Improvements at Lake Chabot
Kids are coming to Lake Chabot soon for the Youth Fishing Derby, and we need to do a little shoreline improvement so they can reach the water. Please join us on Saturday, March 19 from 9 a.m. to noon. Wear sturdy clothes and shoes (waders if you have them), hat, sunscreen, and gloves. We’ll provide water and refreshments, as well as any tools that are needed. We’ll meet at the boat launch ramp in Dan Foley Community Park. Enter the park at the east end of North Camino Alto, off Tuolumne near Sutter Solano Medical Center.
