It's in Fox Square Park and you can eat at the line of mobile food trucks called Off the Grid. There are several really impressive statues of humanitarian figures, including several individual heads at low level, allowing visually impaired persons to touch and feel the faces of world figures and read their humanitarian statements in braille.

In a plaza in downtown Oakland that is an easy walk from Jack London Square, is a unique set of sculptures depicting humanitarian activists from around the world. The installation includes four gigantic sculptures, each 25 feet high, surrounded by a set of smaller head-casts of the activists that include their names and an inspirational quote from each. The bronze... More
