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.
