Art in Oakland and the Greater Bay Area has long been a tool for activism—from political posters to social movements. In this first speaker event of Oakland Art Murmur’s new series, we ask important questions about the confluence of art and politics, such as ‘How do deep divisions in our political scene affect the way we view art today?’ ‘Should we perceive political art differently; and if so, through what lens?’ Limited Tickets: In advance $15/per person; $20/per person at the door, subject to availability.
