A Peek into ‘oṭṭoy–a Blossoming Iteration of Cafe Ohlone at the Hearst Museum of Anthropology

About this event

Join us for a preview of ‘oṭṭoy—a healing collaboration between Cafe Ohlone and the Hearst Museum. For the past year, Cafe Ohlone and UC Berkeley have worked together in collaboration with the world-class design firm Terremoto to craft a vision that is wholly Ohlone and reflective of the Ohlone people and the landscape they have inhabited for thousands of years. Through in-depth conversations with the Ohlone community and a process of mutual respect, the vision is being realized in the redesign of the open-air Hearst courtyard into a “love song to Ohlone culture.”

‘oṭṭoy will officially open later this spring; on April 23 between 4 and 7 PM, in conjunction with Cal Day, we are pleased to offer ticketed guests a peek into the installation in progress. Attendees will receive a guided tour of the space with Cafe Ohlone co-founders Vincent Medina and Louis Trevino, followed by a taste of the delicious cuisine that Cafe Ohlone is known for. Each tour and tasting will last 30 minutes; the food will be served outside the Anthro/Art Practice building @ College and Bancroft.

More information and ticket reservations can be found here. If you are not able to attend this event but would like to support this project, please consider making a donation to the ‘oṭṭoy fund.
