More Details to Follow!

---

A Museum of Capitalism is opening this June in Oakland, California. The museum will be the first of its kind in the United States, dedicated to “educating future generations about the ideology, history, and legacy of capitalism,” as its mission states. Through multimedia exhibits created by a diverse network of artists, scholars, and ordinary citizens, the museum’s opening exhibition will explore the historical phenomenon of capitalism and its intersections with themes like race, class, and environment in the United States. The exhibition will take place in Oakland, California’s Jack London neighborhood, in partnership with the nonprofit Jack London Improvement District and Jack London Square, and with support from the Emily Hall Tremaine Exhibition Award.

Representing the collaborative efforts of a multidisciplinary team of curators, historians, artists, and designers, the museum’s inaugural exhibition will feature several multimedia exhibits and experiences created by some of today's most dynamic artists. The exhibition will also include a library where visitors can browse several collections and learn more about the exhibits, as well as a recreation of an early-21st Century museum gift shop. Artifacts of capitalism, donated and loaned from citizens across the country, will be on display alongside the exhibits.

More information on opening events and ongoing programming will be posted here, and at museumofcapitalism.org.
