The October 6th installation, entitled "Mobility," features the work of over 50 media and sound artists. Each will illuminate our notions of physical, social and economic mobility in the burgeoning Northgate neighborhood: a place of art and manufacture teetering on the borders of Oakland's 10K Plan.
