Named for the most famous symbol of the domestic wartime effort, the Rosie the Riveter / WWII Home Front National Historic Park stretches five miles along the City of Richmond’s section of the San Francisco Bay Trail. Mayer/Reed’s work communicates the national home-front experience through an interpretive signage project at the former Kaiser Shipyard #2. The firm designed eight sculptural markers inspired by the prow of wartime ships. The landmarks incorporate interpretive panels that portray stories of individuals affected by the war and of the sweeping labor law, health care and education reforms that were initiated during WWII.
