David Best at Oakland Museum today!

David Best will give a gallery talk at the Oakland Museum of California today at 6:30 pm.

From the OMCA website:
Join Chief Curator of Art Phil Linhares and see the new OMCA Gallery of California Art through the eyes of artist David Best. Best, a sculptor in ceramics and mixed media, is the creator of a series of extravagant “Art Cars” and a legendary builder of temples at Burning Man, where he constructs immense temples out of recycled wood sheets (discarded from making toys and other punch-outs) that are then burnt to the ground in a spectacle of light and heat. Hear Best’s observations about objects in the OMCA collection, and add your own in an informal—and sure to be controversial—conversation. OMCA is open until 9 p.m. every Friday. Included with Museum admission.
