Betti Ono is an experimentally minded space for art + culture + community headquartered in Oakland, California. We are 100% Black women led and operated, dedicated to amplifying the work and voices of under-represented artists. Our vision and creative practice embodies the bold, curious and unapologetic spirit of our name-sakes Betti Mabry Davis and Yoko Ono. We value art making as a form and function of activism, self-determination, community transformation and cultural resilience. We celebrate the culture of everyday people and focus our core work on participation, accessibility and inclusivity.
Art Responders, in collaboration with Betti Ono Gallery presents VIRAL: 25 Years From Rodney King (VIRAL: RK25), a touring exhibition and community arts project offering an immersive visualization of violence in U.S. law enforcement over the past quarter century.
