Event Details

Obscura Society - 16th Street Station

Graffiti covered and silent, Oakland's last great train station stands empty, awaiting the opportunity to be restored and reborn into a new life. We've arranged for special access to the grounds and the inside of the magnificent 16th Street Station building itself to document and explore its faded beauty and grand architecture during this time of transition. 

The images we collect will form part of an online archive of the Bay Area's fading remnants of the age of rail.

Grab your best camera and join us for a rare opportunity to get up close to this reminder of the great age of rail in the Bay Area.

DETAILS

  • Saturday, March 9, 1-3 pm
