TONIGHT!: Station to Station in West Oakland

Station to Station is a public art project on the move, traveling from the East Coast to the West using what’s now become a rather archaic means of transportation: the railroad.

Tonight they’re ending their trip to the Pacific Ocean in Oakland — the very last station. Supported by Levi’s, the artist-driven project includes music performances, installations, nomadic sculptures and even artists creating work at the event itself.


Performances include the likes of  by Dan Deacon, No Age, Savages,  Twin Shadow and more. Since it’s the final event, tonight’s Oakland performances will be different from all the others — the culmination artworks and artists that have travelled from New York to Pittsburg to Chicago, all the way here.

Artist Lawrence Weiner created a series of flags, each with a different symbol and design for the nine events in nine cities. All the flags will be on display as one tonight, presented together as a visual conclusion of this massive country-wide public art project.

Unfortunately the event is already sold out, but if you got your ticket in advance, Art Nerd will see ya there! It starts at 6pm at 16th Street Station, with shuttles provided from the West Oakland BART station on 7th Street.
