Pro Arts Gallery

150 Frank H. Ogawa Plaza

Pro Arts is an Oakland-based regional organization that encourages change in and through the arts to invigorate our communities.

Pro Arts' vision is to inspire creativity, community and change. Celebrating our 40th Anniversary in 2014, we've evolved into a vital artistic hub for Oakland and the Bay Area. We engage public audiences, artists, and youth in and through the arts via three key program areas: Visual Arts, Arts Education and Artist Services. Annually, Pro Arts produces over 20 exhibitions, exhibits over 600 artists, and conducts over 700 art classes for youth.

Nice free art gallery that shows some interesting contemporary art works. Some times there are exhibits that are really neat and cool. Considering how expensive seeing art museums like SF Moma which I can't afford to visit often, it is nice to see a little bit of neat contemporary art for free at art galleries like this place.
