The Oakland Museum of California’s special exhibition, Out of the Box: The Rise of Sneaker Culture, chronicles how sneakers have evolved into a cultural force in fashion and self-expression. See over 140 rare and iconic shoes from renowned collections and designers, including Louis Vuitton, Pierre Hardy, Nike, Christian Louboutin, Adidas, Reebok, and more.
OMCA is continuing to engage Oakland in participatory arts projects outside the museum's walls, through OMCA Connect. OMCA Connect brings together community members, professional artists, community-based organizations, and Museum staff to create participatory arts projects in community spaces and surrounding neighborhoods. The Oakland Rover, OMCA's "mobile museum," is one of the many tools used to connect to the local community.
