    In the past year on the Oakland Museum of California Blog, we’ve covered everything from the joining the Women’s March to supporting the #DayOfFacts from our own collections; revealing Dorothea Lange’s personal archive to unveiling a custom mural in Oak Street Plaza; sharing interviews from activists at the Dakota Access Pipeline to offering our own Citizen Science projects you can do at home. We’re proud to tell stories from and about our community, sharing topics from inside the Museum walls and beyond.

Don't miss the special spooky surprise at the end of the night (head towards the 10th Street Amphitheater around 8:45).
