Birdbath with Children

California School for the Deaf, 39350 Gallaudet Drive.

Birdbath with children, artist unknown, material is apparently carved marble. This playful piece dates from the 1930s, and may be found in front of the theatre at the school. Privately owned.

While you are viewing this piece, also notice the metal artwork on the doors of theatre depicting the story of “The Fox and Grapes” from “Aesop’s Fables.” School office staff believes artists from the Works Project Administration created the metal artwork in 1932.

The bell in the nearby clock tower was donated to the Berkeley School for the Deaf by the Levi Strauss family, in memory of Louis Strauss. It was later moved to the Fremont School for installation in their clock tower, which was completed in December 1993.
