Whether it's a gallery walk-through led by an OMCA Docent or a talk by an artist, a Docent-led bike tour of Oakland or a music-filled evening in our galleries, our special programs and events offer new perspectives on the way you think about our state and our community. We offer a dynamic array of compelling adult programs reflecting the California experience.
Our OMCA Calendar is filled with numerous special events—including talks given by curators and artists, film screenings, and live performances, just to name a few—many of which are included with museum admission. We also invite you to celebrate the diverse cultures and arts of our community through our Community Celebrations.
