Art & Culture From Cava's Side
Cava allows herself to make that connection to the natural beauty of Oakland, and lets the city manifest itself in her work. Art is such an immersive community experience, but it’s also a personal invitation to access your interrelatedness with your environment, and Oakland has so much to offer to that creative process.
