Nassi {Rebirth}

Alena Museum has collaborated with artists and visionaries to present a space that embodies the past and present to envision how we imagine the future. Through multi-sensory installations, you will walk through the peaks and valleys of the African diaspora, experiencing the beauty, pain, culture, and community. Come with an open mind and an accepting spirit to make your way through this historical, magical journey. Alena Museum is proud to present "Nassi," a rebirth of a culture that has had immeasurable influence around the globe.

With the support of our partners, Nassi will be taking place at the historic Swan's Market, opening February 16th, 2019.

This is Oakanda! Art Installation

We will gather the creative voices and collective power of our community and allies to demonstrate and speak out against the private investors, developers, and politicians who are set out to broaden the gap of wealth at the expense of the people.  We as citizens will not go unheard.  Displacing the community will not be a silent fight.  Stand up for you, your family, your neighbors, and your community as we are witnessing gentrification destroying the cultural fabric of Oakland.
