OMCA Blog: Posts tagged "In Memoriam"

    On December 2, 2016, 36 people perished in a fire in the Ghost Ship warehouse, not far from the Oakland Museum of California. Many of those who were lost were artists or involved in some way in creative expression—musicians, sound engineers, writers—and included filmmaker Alex Ghassan, who worked closely with OMCA. Lori Fogarty reflects on the tragedy one year later, and the site of the Museum as a space for gathering in community.

    As I remember our dear colleague, Louise Pubols, former Senior Curator of History here at the Oakland Museum of California who passed away earlier this year, I can picture so many moments from the years we worked together. Memories of her are intertwined with all of the exhibitions she led throughout her tenure here, like The 1968 Exhibit in 2012 and Above & Below: Stories of our Changing Bay in 2013.
