      Construction is underway for a project that will create a new home for BAM/PFA, a vibrant multi-media art center for the campus and community. This center is comprised of the re-purposed former UC printing plant at 2120 Oxford Street as well as new construction. The donor-funded facility will house BAM/PFA’s exhibition galleries, library, film study center; education and art-making spaces; store; cafe; and offices as well as a 230-seat theater and a 32-seat screening room. The new facility is scheduled to open in early 2016.

      rdbarrierWeek of October 20 - The Berkeley Art Museum/Pacific Film Archive project has underground utility work planned that will impact the intersection of Shattuck Ave and Center Street. It will also temporarily remove some metered street parking on the south side of Center Street, roughly across from the BofA. AC Transit staging on the north side of Center will be temporarily relocated for the week.

      Eastbound vehicle traffic on Center Street will use the parking lane as work is underway, so traffic flow will be maintained in both directions.

      Work is scheduled to start Monday Oct. 20 and to continue through Friday Oct. 24. Crews will work 7am – 4pm. The roadways and parking spaces will be open after hours.

      Lane closures and detours will be clearly marked and flaggers will be on site to assist with traffic.
