2021-2022 Impact Report

Returning to OMCA - image of two people eating at a picnic table

Here at OMCA, we work diligently to tell the many stories that comprise California, creating the space and context for greater connection, trust, and understanding between people.

Each year, we reflect and ask ourselves— have we moved the needle? How are we monitoring our progress? OMCA’s yearly Impact Report is one such way and we’d like to share it with you.

Our 2021–2022 Impact Report highlights our efforts including special exhibitions, our work with schools, a new installation designed for young children, and the new native plantings in our garden.

The Museum of Resilience - two kids playing in OMCA's garden

In March 2020, just before our planned 50th anniversary gala, the Covid-19 pandemic upended the Bay Area and the Oakland Museum of California was forced to close. Our organization, like the world around us, will be forever changed by this challenging year.

During this time, our OMCA community came through for us with support, generosity, and a collaborative spirit. Museum staff remained committed to serving our audiences at home and online. Fifteen months later, on June 11, 2021, we reopened our campus and welcomed you back.

Thank you for supporting OMCA and our collective resilience!”
