I am very much looking forward to the re-opening of the Oakland Museum of California. According to their website, that will be in May of next year. Having relocated from the east coast I am eager to learn more about its ‘California’ collection which, according to this article, will allow me to chart my own immigration story to this great state.
I am also excited to see what they have to offer in the way of contemporary art.Their collection includes a Dorothea Lange archive and bay area figurative paintings.
I agree 100% with the senior museum curator, Rene de Guzman, that even in these tough economic times, the east bay art scene will continue to grow.
