Obscura Society SF: Albany Bulb Exploration

Come out exploring with us in one of the Bay Area's most eclectic and imaginative outdoor art environments

As a compliment to our evening salon with local filmmaker Tomas McCabe, join us for an afternoon exploration of the outsider arts environment at the Albany Bulb.

Bring your camera and join us for a wander on this landfill-cum-arts environment looking for the concrete masterpiece of the "Castle", giant driftwood sculptures, unusual paintings and assemblages and the petite labyrinth at the end of the peninsula.


  • Saturday March 23, 1-3pm
  • Meet at the roundabout at the beginning of the bulb, by the large metal sculpture of herons
  • PLEASE NOTE: The area we'll be walking around is a public space, popular with hikers and dog walkers. Wear clothing and shoes appropriate for uneven terrain and changeable weather.
