What makes a plant become more than a plant? Join the budding conversation in Altered State: Marijuana in California, open April 16–September 25, 2016, the first-ever museum exhibition to focus on marijuana in California today at the Oakland Museum of California. Explore the evolving attitudes, complex issues, and public perceptions surrounding the world’s most provocative plant.
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.
