Experiments in work and play by the Oakland Museum of California

Next Friday, February 4th, 8pm-1am, OMCA launches the Oakland Standard with a party like no other. In fact, it’s more than a party; it’s a mash-up meets Oakland art explosion. Think art, conversation, music, paparazzi, and even cupcakes. Yes, cupcakes. Did that get your attention? If not, then turf dancing by the internationally acclaimed street dancers Turf Feinz surely will. Still need convincing? DJ Mia Moretti is flying in from NYC for the night to rock your socks off with a special California set. The funny thing about launch parties is they only happen once…

DJ Mia Moretti, Walter Kitundu, Tammy Rae Carland, Mary Roach, Novella Carpenter, Wajahat Ali, Jerome Waag, Cory Wright, Hamburger Eyes, Turf Feinz, East Bay Bicycle Coalition, Blue Oak café, and more.

About the Oakland Standard
The Oakland Standard is a series of contemporary art projects by the Oakland Museum of California.

Political Poster Jam
Friday, February 25, 8–11 pm

Join the Oakland Standard as we honor the history of political posters in the Bay Area, and OMCA’s acquisition of the All Of Us Or None political poster collection. As part of OMCA’s quarterly O Zone celebration happening the same night, the Oakland Standard presents a digital and screen printing workshop with Kala Institute, San Francisco Print Collective, Great Tortilla Conspiracy, street artist Eddie Colla, Jesus Barraza, and Amoeba Music DJs. Plus a conversation with former Black Panther Minister of Culture Emory Douglas, artist Favianna Rodriguez, and political poster historian Lincoln Cushing.
