California Futures Lecture Series: Geek Out!

Saturday, September 21, 2013, 2–3:30 pm

Please note: This event was previously listed in some places as happening on Saturday, September 28, but the correct date is Saturday, September 21. 

Come “geek out” at OMCA with special guest speakers Sarah Karlinsky, SPUR’s Deputy Director of policy and public engagement, Craig Scott, co-designer of Hydro-Net SF2108, the Grand-Prize winning entry from San Francisco for History Channel’s City of the Future design competition, and an engineer from the T.Y. Lin International Group, which provided complete engineering design services for the new Eastern span of the Bay Bridge. Moderated by Senior Curator of History Louise Pubols, this conversation will tackle issues explored in the exhibition Above and Below: Stories From Our Changing Bay, including how planning and infrastructure have shaped the Bay, and how we can all be visionaries in determining what the Bay of the future will be.

Don't miss out on a fantastic brunch before, with Blue Oak café's Bay Brunches at the Museum. Specially scheduled to coincide with the Geek Out! Lecture, today's brunch features local ingredients, a selection of sea salts, mimosas and bloody marys, and table service. More details.
