880 South: Oakland, Oakland Museum of California


update/p. 315
After being renovated and expanded to the tune of $62 million, the Oakland Museum of California reopens this weekend. Admission is free beginning May 1 at 11 a.m. through May 2 at 6 p.m. Yes, that is 31 hours straight, with plenty of festivities planned to entertain throughout--all funded by Target. Inside The Gallery of California History you'll see Dorothea Lange’s Depresession images projected on the windshield of a Model T Ford and--in the museum’s spirit of providing thoughtful experiences and making clever use of artifacts--you can curl up in a real pipe from the infamous Pipe City. The Gallery of California Art offers further interactive ways to heighten your sensitivity to the art being observed.
