Every month, John Muir Laws organizes a sketching field trip for the SF Bay Area's Nature Journal Club. This time, thanks to an errant weather forecast, he ended up moving it indoors and we checked out the recently renovated Galley of California Natural Sciences at the Oakland Museum of California. Dioramas galore!
First we had to run the gantlet of admission. It happened to be the final day of the museum's "Black Panthers at 50" exhibit, and the crowd was immense!
And then, the exhibits. The gallery is organized into seven different California regions, and I attempted to document them all! No color media are permitted in the gallery, so welcome to my monochrome wonderland.
