Community-Minded Oakopolis

Like the rabbit hole that transported Alice, the hallway goes on and on, leading visitors to an equally curious destination at its terminus: An art gallery that is not for profit, but not a nonprofit; with time and skills donated by artists, yet it is not a collective. It has no business model to speak of, but draws its inspiration from The Big City, an installation piece created in the early 2000s by its director, Joell Jones, which included “a place where all people could gather and do creative work.” Nebulous and always evolving, it is Oakopolis Creativity Center in Oakland, aka Oakopolis Gallery.
