Eduardo Pineda has painted over 60 murals for cities, museums, school districts, universities, corporations, unions and commercial businesses since joining the Community Mural Movement in 1978. In 2015 he was commissioned by the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 1245 to paint a mural at their Union Hall in Vacaville, CA, and he was honored by the City of Berkeley for his commitment to sharing creativity, community arts, and education, with a proclamation declaring May 12, 2015: Eduardo Pineda Day. In 2014 he completed two murals for UA Homes in Berkeley, his second commission from Resources for Community Development. Pineda teamed up with Oakland muralist Joaquin Alejandro Newman (2008-13) to produce 10 murals and public art works. The duo received two commissions from the Alameda County Arts Commission: REACH Ashland Youth Center (2013) and 100 Families Highland Hospital Community Mural Project (2010), and collaborated with San Francisco State University anthropology students to create health murals for Healthrights360 (2013) and the Mission Neighborhood Health Center (2011). In 2009 Pineda painted a mural for a health clinic in Bamako Mali, West Africa, and produced a photo series for the Alameda County Arts Commission. His mural partnership, Fresco (1990-98), with legendary muralist Raymond Patlán produced over 20 murals. He was the Director of Education at the Museum of the African Diaspora (2006-2007) and held multiple education posts at SFMOMA (1990-2006). As an independent curator he has organized exhibitions at numerous Bay Area museums and alternative art spaces. In 2013, Pineda curated The Tree of Life and Death: Dias de los Muertos 2013, the 19th annual Days of the Dead exhibition at the Oakland Museum of California and Rosa Valdez: 2x2 Solos at Pro Arts Gallery Oakland. In 2010 he co-curated Images: Independence and Revolution an on-going exhibition of permanent collection objects for The Mexican Museum, San Francisco. He is Adjunct Professor at the California College of the Arts teaching mural art and an Arts Integration Specialist for the Alameda County Office of Education. He was a teaching artist for the VALUES Project (2003-2006) – an arts integration project of the California College of Arts, the Alameda County Office of Education and Harvard University Project Zero. He earned a M.A. in interdisciplinary arts at San Francisco State University (1988) and a BFA in painting from the San Francisco Art Institute (1983).
