    Here at OMCA, we are big fans of Articulate with Jim Cotter, a weekly public television show from WHYY, Philadelphia’s PBS and NPR member-station, that explores how creative thinkers help shape our understanding of the world to share selections from the series. Articulate presents a mix of topic features and profiles of some of today’s leading artists, including great thinkers based in California.

    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.

    Urban gardening—whether in one’s yard, a community plot, or even in window box—is the subject of a dynamic, family-friendly exhibition in the Gallery of California Natural Sciences called Take Root: Oakland Grows Food.
