Located on the San Pablo Peninsula, Point Molate is a diverse ecosystem known as an osprey recovery site and for its rare eelgrass beds, coastal prairie, and coastal bluff native plants. It is located next to California’s third largest oil refinery in Richmond. Communities that border the facility experience higher health impacts and advocates seek equitable access along with preservation. Artists Rebeca García-González, Irene Wibawa, Tony Tamayo, and the butohBuddies performance group (Ruth Ichinaga, Kiyono Kishi, Lipton Mah, Nina Moore, and Irene Wibawa) present new artworks inspired by Point Molate.

Special Event: On February 24 at 1pm, the butohBuddies will share a performance inspired by Point Molate. Following the performance, curator Jenny E. Balisle will facilitate a conversation with the Point Molate artists. 

The exhibition is organized by ARTSCCC (Arts Contra Costa County). ARTSCCC is a grassroots service and advocacy arts organization in Contra Costa County.
