Inspired by wolves returning to the Chernobyl Exclusion zone to hunt – a sign of an ecosystem beginning to heal after a large natural disaster – artist Lucidbeaming started projecting an animated, running pack of Wolves from the back of his bicycle. The artist has been circling through San Jose at nighttime, engaging and intriguing residents with his artwork since the pandemic began. “The Wolves project started with the idea of balance in nature”, Lucidbeaming comments, “I decided to bring that into the modern city to show the wolves running on the sides of buildings and houses in the empty urban environments. It connected with many people.”

In celebration of our emergence from the pandemic he will now project his Wolves along three different routes in Palo Alto. During five consecutive evenings from May 11 through May 17 he will cover the Downtown, Midtown and California Avenue areas by taking 60-minute rides after sunset with his Wolves. Our Interactive Tour Map shows his routes, and the artist’s Wolf Tracker website will provide live updates of his location.

The Palo Alto Public Art Program is proud to present the ArtLift Microgrant Program which is funding up 40 artist projects helping the community recover both emotionally and economically from the pandemic through the arts and creative outlets. ArtLift is being presented in support of Uplift Local efforts already underway with the purpose of connecting the community together. Through funding art projects and experiences in our commercial corridors and our neighborhoods, ArtLift is fostering safe and creative ways to remain engaged in the arts, reconnect with each other, and recover together as a cohesive community. Taking advantage of unique locations across Palo Alto, artists are performing, creating or installing artworks focused on community connectedness, resiliency, empathy, vibrancy, and recovery.
