Coinciding with the Black Panther Party's 50th anniversary in October 2016, the exhibition All Power to the People presents a contemporary view on the legacy of this visionary group, told from multiple perspectives. The Black Panther story is complex. The Panthers’ ideas were potent, and they continue to inspire many. Visit All Power to the People and reflect more deeply about the Black Panther Party and its place in our shared history.
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.
