Oakland Museum of California presents:

Nature's Gift: Humans, Friends & the Unknown

October 7, 2017-January 21, 2018; Wed-Thur 11am-5pm, Fri 11am-10pm, Sat-Sun 10am-6pm, Oakland


The Oakland Museum of California (OMCA) presents the world premiere of Nature's Gift: Humans, Friends & the Unknown, an immersive experience featuring a large-scale, commissioned work by Los Angeles based FriendsWithYou-the fine art collaborative including Samuel Borkson and Arturo Sandoval III. Internationally recognized as pioneers in the field of experiential art, FriendsWithYou is best known for creating experiences that draw audiences into a magical world where the line between imagination and reality are blurred.

OMCA's exhibition will feature a new commissioned installation titled Nature's Gift. A light-filled, interactive environment and multi-sensory experience for all ages, visitors will escape into the work through a rainbow passageway that figuratively transports them into an alternative world. OMCA's Great Hall is transformed into an imaginative and otherworldly place that sets the stage for visitors to experience friendship, magic, and social connection.

Enchanting and whimsical, Nature's Gift: Humans, Friends & the Unknown will fill an otherwise dark room with bright, multicolored LED lights and layers of texture and sound. An ambient soundtrack developed by Norman Bambi will set the tone to bring visitors deeper into the experience. The space will be activated by programming, with both experiences that facilitate reflection such as yoga and meditation, as well as experiences that encourage movement and expression such as curated DJ selections throughout the exhibition run during Friday Nights @ OMCA. In addition, special merchandising will be available for all ages to augment the exhibition experience.
