Friday, December 22, 2017 - 11:00am

Have guests in town over the holidays? Need help entertaining? Show off your Museum and come away with plenty to talk about together after your visit! Double win! OMCA stays open extra days this holiday season, so you can take advantage of all that the Museum has to offer—including an after-dinner trip to OMCA with late night gallery access starting at 5 pm. 

And we're still here for your Friday night fun, too. On Fridays from 5–9 pm, enjoy grab-and-go snacks and bar service at the Blue Oak café until 8 pm. Plus, you can bring your drinks into Nature’s Gift: Humans, Friends & the Unknown, which has everything you need to relax and let loose right inside the Astroturf-lined gallery alongside bean bangs and hammocks next to the glowing inflatable sculpture. Don't forget to stop by the Pop-Up Store to grab LED-lit swag to enhance your experience!

Tonight, take a Snack-Sized Tour with a Docent at 7:30 pm. Check at the Ticketing desk to discover this evening’s meeting place and surprise theme. 

Don't miss a chance to explore our Days of the Dead exhibition Metamorphosis & Migration, the newly opened Take Root: Oakland Grows Food, the powerful videowork Question Bridge: Black Males, and our three galleries of California art, history, and science. 

Regular Friday Nights @ OMCA programming will resume on January 12, 2018. Check back soon for more details!
