Saturday, May 19, 5:30 pm–midnight
On June 10, 2017, members of the community came together to eat, drink, dance, bid, and raise over $250,000 for OMCA at the second annual Ziggurat. This year, OMCA’s out-of-the-box gala fundraiser returns on May 19. More than 350 guests will be treated to a memorable evening celebrating Oakland’s art and community, while raising funds that directly support OMCA’s thought-provoking exhibits and community work.
Ziggurat 2018 builds off the energy of the Museum’s dynamic special exhibition RESPECT: Hip-Hop Style & Wisdom. The evening will celebrate the deep roots of Bay Area Hip-Hop by partnering with local musicians, artists, and more.
After dinner—curated by Barbara Llewellyn Catering and featuring prominent local chefs and restaurants—and a live auction featuring unique, experiential packages, the evening will transition to Ziggurat Late Night, where live performances will inspire guests to hit the dance floor!
