Artist's Reception: Michael Wertz and Kamaria Lofton

Cover of My City is Oakland

Please join us in the opening reception of our exhibit featuring the work of author-illustrator Michael Wertz and author Kamaria Lofton. We’ll have several images of Michael’s illustrations from ABC Oakland and other picture books, along with details of his process in creating a new library card in partnership with Children’s Fairyland. Michael will offer insight into his artistic process and how his love of Oakland has shaped his work. Kamaria, an Oakland native, will share her process in the loving creation of three picture books (so far!) for her Kids Love Oakland! Series. Be prepared for some surprises along the way!

Light refreshments will be served. Everyone is welcome.

Co-hosted by our friends at Children's Fairyland. Children's Fairyland has been an Oakland favorite since 1950. The whimsical 10-acre park is a magical fantasy world where young children can create, imagine, play, and learn all day long, located on the shores of Lake Merritt in Oakland, California.
