Generous Gestures


On behalf of the Board of Trustees and staff of the Oakland Museum of California, it is our pleasure to present the Annual Report for the fiscal year July 1, 2013 through June 30, 2014. In October 2013, the Board of Trustees achieved a key accomplishment by approving a new mission statement and the OMCA 2014-2019 Strategic Plan “Inspiring California’s Future.” The plan officially articulates OMCA’s commitment to community engagement and underscores the Museum’s role as a catalyst for community revitalization. The planning process was propelled by the Museum’s recent transformations—from the completion of the $66 million capital campaign and renovation project to the transition in operations from the City of Oakland, as well as the Museum’s upcoming 50th anniversary in 2019. Beyond the many changes OMCA has experienced, we also recognize the enormous societal challenges and opportunities all cultural institutions, particularly in California, are facing: dramatically changing demographics, new uses of technology, changing expectations for leisure time, and shifting financial models and conditions for non-profit organizations. The strategic planning process galvanized a robust and inclusive institution-wide effort to consider our future in the context of broader cultural trends. Indeed, considering the future marks a new way for


the Museum to approach its purpose—moving from a focus on preserving the past to inspiring a future vision of California. Through the planning process, the board and staff faced important questions such as: How do we utilize objects and the stories they reflect to not only describe the past, but to also inform the future? How do we move beyond our walls and into the community through new partnerships and networks? How might we embrace the complexity of our local audience within the broader California narrative—and a global audience as we consider our future as citizens? Lastly, what role can we play in the future of educating and inspiring the next generation of civic leaders? OMCA has always been at the forefront of what it means to be a museum for the people and, once again, we are actively pushing the evolution of this institution and its role in our community. Our vision is to be the heart of our city and a statewide leader. As a catalyst for community health and vitality, OMCA will serve as a forum for dialogue, social connection, and community expression. We will achieve statewide leadership by sharing the stories of California as a thought leader, educational resource, and repository of California’s heritage. Of course, the achievement of these goals—and the realization of our mission—would not be possible without the contributions of our Members and Donors, the involvement of our volunteers and community

Dear Supporters,

partners, and the interest and participation of our visitors. The OMCA board and staff are very proud to have, once again, concluded the fiscal year with a modest operating surplus for the ninth consecutive year. We are also grateful to the City of Oakland for its continued sustaining support and for the partnership that ensures that the Museum, while no longer a “City” entity, is still very much a civic institution. As you will see in the following pages, OMCA produced a wide variety of exhibitions and programs over the past year, inviting more than 158,000 visitors into the galleries and welcoming tens of thousands more to our annual cultural celebrations and the very popular weekly series, Friday Nights @ OMCA.

THE GOALS OF THE STRATEGIC PLAN INCLUDE: • OMCA creates relevant experiences that diverse audiences value.

We thank our entire community of supporters and all those who are dedicated to the success of the Oakland Museum of California. We appreciate your investment in our work on behalf of Oakland, the broader Bay Area, and the state of California whose heritage, creativity, and natural wonders we celebrate in our collections, exhibitions, and programs. We hope you enjoy taking a look back at our momentous year.

In appreciation,

Mike Moye

FOCUSING ON THE BAY OMCA celebrated the “Year of the Bay” with a number of exhibitions and programs. From the opening of the new Bay Bridge Eastern span and the America’s Cup sailing competition to smaller scale events, residents and tourists alike were invited to focus on the San Francisco Bay and its place in our daily lives and our shared histories.

The Bay Bridge June 21–October 11, 2013 Travelers moving through the Oakland International Airport (OAK) were treated to a meditation on the history and future of the Bay Bridge as part of an ongoing series of off-site exhibitions curated by OMCA. Collections included posters, artifacts, maps, and documentary construction photographs of the Bay Bridge to mark the reinvention of this Bay Area landmark.

Peter Stackpole: Bridging the Bay July 20, 2013–January 26, 2014 This exhibition was the third installation in OMCA’s ongoing series exploring contemporary topics in California through photography. Peter Stackpole was a young man in the right place at the right time and his appreciation for the hand-held camera found a perfect subject chronicling the Bay Area’s bridgebuilding era. The exhibition drew from OMCA’s extensive photographic holdings and stunning documentation of the original San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge and Golden Gate Bridge constructions in the 1930s.

Above and Below: Stories From Our Changing Bay August 31, 2013–February 23, 2014 Visitors were invited into this sweeping multidisciplinary exhibition to reconsider their relationship with, and understanding of, the San Francisco Bay. It explored the history, geography, ecology, art, and culture of the Bay and how humans, together with natural forces, have shaped and reshaped the landscape over 6,000 years. Special exhibition elements included a threehour “flyover” video following the edges of the Bay, a virtual landscape of the Emeryville Shellmound created by the digital archiving organization CyArk, native landscape paintings, and other historic Bay visualizations.

Summer Reading Celebration

OMCA Connect

August 4, 2013 Over 1,000 visitors enjoyed the annual Summer Reading Celebration, presented in partnership with the Oakland Public Library. This family event honored the young readers who completed the Summer Reading Program by reading eight hours or more during the summer. Activities and games were provided by Oakland Parks and Recreation and focused on the year’s theme–“Reading is SO Delicious!”

The Museum’s public engagement initiative brought local community members and professional artists together to create art expressing personal and community identities. The Oakland Rover, OMCA’s mobile platform, took trips to the Oakland Asian Cultural Center’s Lunar New Year Festival, the Malcolm X Jazz Festival in San Antonio Park, the opening of Oaklandish’s new Dimond District shop, the Life is Living Festival at DeFremery Park, Family Fun Nights and BBQs at the YMCA of the East Bay, and the Oakland Chinatown StreetFest, among other events. 9

FALL 2013

HONORING NATIVE CULTURES Fall exhibitions and programs celebrated the living traditions that help shape California’s heritage. The Tree of Life and Death: Dias de los Muertos 2013

The Smallest of Worlds

October 9–December 15, 2013

Opened in concert with Días de los Muertos 2013, this one-room, intimate exhibit in the Gallery of California Art showcased miniatures from the collection of celebrated San Francisco artist Rex May (1924–1993). These intricate dioramas were all commissioned by May from the Aguilar family of artists in Oaxaca, Mexico. The exhibit portrayed moments from everyday Mexican street scenes such as a flower market and a cantina highlighting a playful folk art that brought its figures, buildings, and objects to life.

The 19 annual Days of the Dead exhibition honored the cycles of life and spiritual connections to nature and the environment. The exhibit focused on the connections between humans and nature in life and death as well as the traditions of California’s Mesoamerican cultures. As a way to honor loved ones throughout the exhibition’s run, visitors contributed their own memories and tributes to lost loved ones by posting videos and photos with #OdesToThePassed on Twitter. During the ten-week Days of the Dead school tour and exhibit guide program, OMCA served over 6,300 students with forty-eight exhibit guides leading tours. October 27, 2013 marked the annual Community Celebration when OMCA welcomed more than 3,500 visitors to enjoy performances, commissions by local artists, and traditional healing ceremonies. th

California Indian Lifeways

IMAGES: left, Ace Lehner; top right, Shaun Roberts

One of OMCA’s most popular school tours served over 800 students during Native American Indian Heritage Month in November. Using artifacts and artistic reproductions, Docents and a Native American educator facilitated student discussions on cultural heritage, identity, and how Native Californians continue to teach and honor their traditions.

ASH! (Art, Science, History!): Making Art From the Land This multidisciplinary education program served 1,500 students who toured the Gallery of California Art and participated in a hands-on workshop. Students explored the way Californians have used their natural environment in creative and sustainable ways and made natural paint from organic materials to create original art pieces.


DOCUMENTING THE BAY Films and videos captured our endless fascination with the Bay Area’s evolution.

November 9, 2013–June 29, 2014 OMCA partnered with San Francisco’s Prelinger Archives and Library for this exhibition designed to transport visitors back to familiar, but often forgotten, moments and places. Installed on multiple screens in the Gallery of California Art, large-scale projections presented ephemeral film such as home movies, corporate films, and stock footage of the Bay Area from the beginning of cinema through the 1970s.

OMCA Video Mash-Up Contest In the spirit of Prelinger’s appropriation-friendly library, OMCA organized a video contest through social media channels. Contestants were encouraged to


use personal or remixed footage from the archives to capture a unique perspective on the San Francisco Bay. OMCA held a public screening of all the submissions, with two entries winning the grand prize—a state-ofthe-art Adobe® editing suite.

A Cinematic Study of Fog in San Francisco November 9, 2013–June 29, 2014 The eye-catching film installation by Sam Green and Andy Black offered an intimate look at the atmospheric phenomenon of fog and its effects on the region, specifically San Francisco. A compelling portrait of this force of nature, the film illuminated the impact of fog on the identity of the Bay Area. IMAGES: left; Ryan LeBlanc, right; Shaun Roberts

UNITING EDUCATORS The education community converged to share special learning opportunities and social connections. Creative Impact Partnership

Teacher Feature

September 13, 2013

October 11, 2013

As part of the third annual Bay Area National Arts in Education Week, OMCA teamed up with Creative Impact, an alliance of arts and education organizations, individuals and communities, to host an evening of youth performance for 350 teachers, students, parents, and community leaders. Local arts leaders from both sides of the Bay spoke about their commitment to working together to create ongoing creative experiences for Bay Area students and their families.

OMCA’s annual event provided more than 300 Bay Area educators the opportunity to explore the galleries and special exhibitions, meet with OMCA staff members, and familiarize themselves with the Museum’s menu of program and tour options. Guest organizations included KIDS for the BAY, Angel Island, Aquarium of the Bay, Bay Model Visitor Center, Golden Gate Audubon Society, Marine Science Institute, and Middle Harbor Shoreline Park.

NIGHTS AND WEEKENDS AT OMCA Visitors took advantage of extended hours for weekly events and exhibition-related programming.

Friday Nights @ OMCA

Lost Landscapes of Oakland

In January, the Museum launched its second year of partnership with Off the Grid to bring a weekly food truck caravan to 10th Street every Friday. OMCA offered a family-friendly take on a festive night market with the best in Bay Area curbside cuisine, locally sourced beverages served at the Blue Oak beer garden, live music and dancing, drop-in art workshops and story time, as well as Makers & Tasters demonstrations. Many first-time visitors took advantage of the half-price gallery admission for adults and free admission for ages 18 and under.

February 22, 2014 Film archivist Rick Prelinger joined OMCA to present the first-ever East Bay-focused episode of his lauded “Lost Landscapes” series, with previous iterations focused on San Francisco and Detroit. The screening, which played to a sold-out audience, featured a curated montage of rediscovered and rarely seen film clips by amateurs, newsreel cameramen, and industrial filmmakers that captured the Oakland of yore.

Inspired by the Bay To complement the Bay-themed exhibitions, OMCA offered In-the-Headlines in-gallery discussions and Geek Out! presentations in the James Moore Theater exploring urgent issues with guest lecturers ranging from authors and filmmakers to artists and scientists. Drop-in creative sessions included bridge-building workshops, and the Blue Oak café featured weekend Bay Brunches.


WELCOMING ALL FAMILIES Families discovered more about their neighbors through lively programs highlighting the Bay Area’s rich diversity. Black History Month Presentations throughout February involved science education, music, and history especially for visiting families. OMCA’s Oakland-based partners included the Museum of African American Technology Science Village that offered hands-on activities with African American inventors and scientists on OMCA Family Sundays. The a cappella group SoVoSo provided a lively interactive performance to over 1,500 students, both entertaining and educating them on the experiences and traditions of the African American community.

Lunar New Year Celebration and Other Asian Traditions February 9, 2014 More than 2,500 visitors welcomed the Year of the Horse at OMCA’s annual Lunar New Year festival. Elements of Chinese, Korean, Vietnamese, Japanese, Tibetan, and other Asian cultures were featured in the daylong celebration, including lion and dragon dances, Bhangra dance, Vietnamese cultural dance and martial arts, K-Pop dance, traditional Chinese orchestral music, Taiko drumming, Tibetan prayer flag making, Ikebana flower arrangements, Korean wrapping cloths, and Chinese Opera face-painting.

We Dream in Art Families throughout Oakland joined together for the unveiling of the community mural on OMCA’s wall at Oak and 12th Streets. Through OMCA Connect, OMCA’s Oakland Rover spent six months attending community events and festivals asking participants the question: “What is your dream for your community?” Their responses formed a visual quilt of citizen art projects interspersed with the many faces of the participants. This public art project was created in partnership with 100 Families Alameda County, with the help of partner organizations YMCA of the East Bay, Oakland Asian Cultural Center, Eastside Arts Alliance, and the Alameda County Arts Commission.

LOVING ROBOTS AND RECORDS Special exhibition galleries became the focal point of cultural exploration as two exhibitions combined elements of the popular and the personal to explore how music, art, and community transform and engage us.

April 19–July 27, 2014 SuperAwesome profiled the new and recent work of fifteen contemporary artists who were all associated with the groundbreaking alternative art and culture magazine Giant Robot. Founded by visionary Eric Nakamura in 1994, Giant Robot inspired a social movement that brought Asian, trans-Pacific popular culture to mainstream US audiences.

Vinyl: The Sound and Culture of Records April 19–July 27, 2014 This interactive exhibition explored the social and cultural phenomenon of listening to, collecting, and sharing records. With multiple individual and group listening stations, the gallery space featured crates of records curated by artists, musicians, and luminaries from the local arts and culture scene. Visitors listened and contributed their own stories and experiences 22 OAKLAND MUSEUM OF CALIFORNIA 2013–2014

with music. Notable and independent musicians, record fanatics, and orchestral conductors submitted their own playlists of songs and records that had an impact on their lives.

SuperAwesome Salons OMCA invited visitors to explore emerging cultural intersections through film, music, and art events on Friday nights. A screening of the screwball comedy Awesome Asian Bad Guys kicked off OMCA’s collaboration with the Center for Asian American Media. The evening also welcomed Won Fu, a high- energy pop band from Taiwan, and an edgy Vietnamese modern fashion show. The Zine and Print Culture salon, organized with Oakland collective Rock Paper Scissors, gave visitors the chance to purchase art directly from exhibiting artists while enjoying a live screen-printing demonstration. The third summer salon on Anime and Manga featured gaming stations from The Museum of Art and Digital Entertainment and a Best Dressed Cosplay Contest.

The Museum of Us

Repurposing the prevalent social media trend of selfies, OMCA encouraged visitors to pose with album covers for a creative self-portrait project called #Sleeveface. OMCA then shared the photos through social media channels and posted them in the gallery, creating a chance for repeat visitors to see themselves reflected in the exhibition.

From website banners to BART to billboards, OMCA’s fresh face popped up across the Bay Area beginning in summer 2014. The Museum worked with the awardwinning advertising agency H&L Partners to develop a new institutional awareness marketing campaign to distinguish itself as a unique, multi-disciplinary institution that tells the stories of California from many different perspectives. The marketing campaign will run through 2015 to increase awareness of OMCA’s brand throughout the region. Follow along on social media at #MuseumofUs!

Talk and Play Guest participants for these themed events included music journalists, record collectors, DJs and experimental musicians. With something different every week, visitors found themselves swapping albums with collectors, learning from an expert about the mechanics of pressing an album, or listening to a specially curated music set.


ENGAGING CALIFORNIA’S STUDENTS The Learning Initiatives department launched new programs and offered perennial favorites in all three core galleries and special exhibitions. More than 36,000 students and teachers participated in Docent-facilitated tours and programs.

School Tours and Programs OMCA’s newest Docent program, Under the Sea: Exploring the World of Cordell Bank National Marine Sanctuary, served over 1,000 students in its first year after the completion of the Cordell Bank section of the Gallery of California Natural Sciences. With the Innovation Lab for Museums project, OMCA kicked off experiments in educational programming with school partners Sequoia Elementary and Martin Luther King Jr. Middle School. Two teachers and 75 students customized their OMCA experience by putting themselves at the center of their learning. Over 37,000 students relived the heady days of gold fever through goldpanning activities over the three month run of those Fabulous ‘49ers and Eureka Days! programming.


Sunshine and Superheroes: San Diego Comic-Con May 23, 2014–May 31, 2015 This exhibition was part of the series What’s Happening, California?, a collaboration between OMCA and the California State University system in which OMCA curators and CSU students co-create exhibitions on contemporary topics affecting communities throughout the state. This exhibit was created by public history students at CSU San Diego to explore the themes of gender in economics, San Diego’s shift towards tourism, and the social and political ramifications of comics through the ages.

GENEROUS GESTURES Corporate Appreciation Night

Leader Lunch

November 1, 2013

February 19, 2014

Corporate Appreciation Night attracted several hundred corporate guests to the Museum for an evening that included free admission to the galleries, prize drawings, and access to all the Friday Nights @ OMCA festivities. The event welcomed all employees from OMCA’s corporate partner companies and introduced the Museum to numerous first-time visitors.

The fourth annual Leader Lunch featured Janet Napolitano, current University of California President and former Secretary of Homeland Security.

White Elephant Sale


March 1 & 2, 2014

May 10, 2014

The Oakland Museum Women’s Board hosted the 55th annual White Elephant Sale during the first weekend in March, raising an unprecedented $1.88 million dollars. The massive rummage sale is the largest of its kind in the Bay Area, and the single largest fundraiser for the Museum. Proceeds from the sale benefit all areas of OMCA, including public programs, school programs and tours, collections, and Museum infrastructure.

More than $450,000 in proceeds from OMCA’s biennial gala supported museum education programs. Four hundred guests gathered for a spectacular evening in celebration of OMCA’s new vision to inspire California’s future and foster the next generation of California’s stewards, citizens, innovators, and creators. A battle of the paddles ensued over unique live auction lots including “A Night at the Museum Sleepover” and a “Private Dinner Party inside the Gallery of California Art.”



California Collections and Research Center (CCRC) As part of ongoing collections care initiatives and guidance from a major General Conservation Survey, OMCA staff reviewed the Museum’s storage capacity and conditions. Hundreds of objects have been rehoused and storage has been reconfigured to gain capacity and preserve collections for better access by curatorial and collections staff. Many objects have also been photographed for the collections website to allow for better public access.


CollectionSpace (C-Space) After a year-long review of more than five museum collections management computer programs, OMCA identified a new Collections Information System. Staff are currently preparing to migrate data from the previous system, which has been in use for over twenty years. The new program is an open source program developed locally and will allow for better data tracking and sharing for the community’s important asset– the Oakland Museum of California Collection.

All Of Us Or None Over 10,000 digital images in the All Of Us Or None political poster collection are now catalogued in the collections database and have been uploaded to OMCA’s collections website, bringing the Museum closer to meeting its goal of having all 24,500 distinct titles catalogued by summer 2015. The team also instituted the “Museum Poster of the Week” program to educate staff members on the collection as well as share relevant posters with the public via social media. Free Speech Movement activist Michael Rossman’s family donated the collection to the Oakland Museum of California in 2009.

Andrew J. Russell Photography Collection

IMAGE: left and top right, Terry Lorant

Andrew J. Russell (1830–1902) documented construction of the first transcontinental railroad as it stretched westward in the late 1860s. OMCA rehoused and made digital images of over 600 delicate collodion glass plate negatives, photographic prints, books, and lantern slides. Funded by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts, OMCA purchased custom boxes and new archival collections furniture to house the collection at the offsite California Collections and Research Center. OMCA staff constructed additional flat storage mounts to house the glass plates. This project will culminate in greater access to this important historic California collection, including updated catalog records, new and more extensive images, and K-12 curriculum developed by OMCA for public use.


ACQUISITION HIGHLIGHTS Native Californian Baskets OMCA acquired a Yuki or Cahto basket (c. 1900 or earlier) and a Chico Maidu basket (c. 1900–1930) both of which were donated to the White Elephant Sale. Both items are in excellent condition. These are important additions to OMCA’s collection of over 2,500 Native baskets from throughout California. Members of the Oakland Museum Women’s Board discovered them among many donations and brought them to the attention of Museum staff.

Protest Posters and Personal Protest Memorabilia The Museum’s long-time friend and supporter Rafael Gonzalez donated a collection of political posters and memorabilia dating from the 1960s to today. All of the material is related to Gonzalez’s life as a political activist in California and complements OMCA’s extensive All Of Us Or None political poster archive. Given the prominence of activist movements throughout Bay Area history, this collection will help the Museum tell an important part of the California story.


Wally Hedrick, Physical Experience #1, 1963. Oil on canvas, 36.5 x 97.5 in. Collection of the Oakland Museum of California, Gift of Paule Anglim.

Wally Hedrick’s Physical Experience #1 (1963) Wally Hedrick is a significant Beat Generation artist, yet is also noted in art history for contributions to a range of genres such as Assemblage, Conceptual Art, Performance, and others. Physical Experience #1 is a mature work and a rare and spectacular example of Hedrick’s painterly practice. The painting comes to OMCA from the personal collection of noted art dealer Paule Anglim.

Russell Chatham’s Summer Fog at Point Reyes (2014) When Senior Curator of Art Harvey Jones retired in 2008, the OMCA Art Guild commissioned Invernessbased Chatham to create a new work of art in honor of the beloved staff member. The painting depicts a classic California coastal scene of fog just offshore from the rolling golden hills of Northern California. Summer Fog at Point Reyes made its stunning public debut in the Gallery of California Natural Sciences as part of the exhibition Inspiration Points: Masterpieces of California Landscape (January 18, 2014–January 4, 2015) and finally takes its rightful place amongst other luminary works in the collection.
