Title: City/Garden
Dates: Apr 5th - May 31st
Time: Check Venue listings.

City/Garden is group show asking artists and community hubs to reflect on the idea of Oakland as a garden and make a piece expressing the growth of their practice and community here.

 As artists when we talk about the Oakland arts community we must also acknowledge the importance of the arts adjacent communities in facilitating our creativity. The meaningful connections that can happen at a restaurant filled with welcoming energy, the aesthetic call and response of the nail parlor, the freedom to literally transform oneself offered by the tattooist. This community building is relevant to art culture and genuine form of expression. We can’t glorify the alternative art spaces without at least a nod to these other places that foster us as artists.

This show is curated by resident artist Holly Bobisuthi
