about oakopolis gallery
What is the OCC?
Oakopolis, for many years, has provided a venue for artists whose work explores the inner landscape, who use their work as a way to process their lives and through that, to contribute to the dialogue between art and consciousness. The brick and mortar gallery was a hybrid of traditional and alternative space, promoting artistic exploration and creative stretching.
The gallery has moved to a purely online platform, where we are currently exploring our Creative Activism project.
Oakopolis Creativity Center was founded by Joell Jones and Jeanne Jabbour with their commitment to influence the future in a positive way. In 2007 the OCC relocated to Uptown Oakland, at the epicenter of the burgeoning Oakland Arts district. The OCC was an early member of the Oakland Art Murmur Organization. We are housed in a 1920s heritage building.
Oakopolis is currently run by artists Joell Jones and Tenaya Gunter Brown, with assistance from Sterling Gee.
