The City of San José announces its ‘Public Art Screensaver’ for those who need a screensaver makeover! Want something cool to look at when you mash that keyboard and cycle through a million digital windows? Curious to know how our public art has grown and evolved? Or maybe just need a destination reminder of some place in this lovely city to visit when you have a rare spare moment?

Snag your screensaver today, it’s free, won’t camouflage your files, and will remind you of the beauty inherent in our history, culture, and art!

Current selections (check back often as these will be rotated quarterly):

  • Sonic Runway, by Artists Jensen and Trezevant (photo by Dave Lepori). A re-designed, and newly fabricated, more robust, version of Sonic Runway is soon to be located at City Hall.
