Friday, November 21, 2014 - 7:00pm

Join geographer and artist Javier Arbona for a brief talk in the Gallery of California History. Arbona will discuss infrastructure and surveillance in the port city of Oakland. Using a foreboding downtown telecommunications building as jumping-off point, he will make connections between the long history of the telegraph in Oakland and state surveillance in our midst today. This in-Gallery pop-up talk takes place during Friday Nights @ OMCA, featuring Off the Grid food trucks, live music, and more.

Included with Museum admission. During Friday Nights @ OMCA, from 5 to 9 pm, admission is half-price for adults, free for ages 18 and under. Admission for OMCA Members is always free.
