Join OMCA in the Gallery of California Art for a talk by Andrew Alden, a geologist, writer, and creator of the popular blog Oakland Geology. Alden volunteered to assign mineral names to all of the stones featured as suiseki in special exhibition UNEARTHED: Found + Made. Near this exhibition, in the Modernism section within the Gallery of California Art, Alden will discuss the paradox of considering stones simultaneously as artworks and as geological specimens.

Included with Museum admission. Admission for Members is always free.
