American College Towns: Berkeley, CA By Kevin Clark, Joel Anderson, 2019
- American College Towns: Berkeley, CA
While Berkeley is a unique and pleasant city for many reasons, the city is perhaps best-known for being the home of University of California Berkeley. Historically, Berkeley was one of the first college campuses to host Vietnam War protests. Visitors to the campus can still find monuments, plaques, and other official recognitions of Berkeley’s contribution to the anti-war movement. And for those who want a good view, one of the most-visited attractions in Berkeley is Sather Tower (also known as the Campanile). From this tower, visitors to Berkeley can experience fantastic views of San Francisco Bay and the Berkeley campus. Standing at 307 feet tall, this tower is the third-tallest bell and clock tower in the world! Anderson Design Group rendered vintage travel poster art of the tower and the bay just beyond. Perfect as an art print, banner, canvas, sign, notecard, or postcard, this retro illustration makes for a great home decor item or gift.
