Platform 13 Comes to West Oakland!
Located in West Oakland’s historic 16th Street Station, ScareCo Haunted Attraction presents Platform 13, an all-new event that’s sure to frighten the East Bay this Halloween season!

Owners Alex Riner-Willens and Joshua Overturf are from Southern California, as evidenced by Platform 13’s Hollywood-style effects and technology. They have over 25 years’ experience working with The Haunted Hotel in San Diego, where Joshua managed the company’s operations while Alex led actor-training exercises for multiple events.

Platform 13 is equally actor-driven, providing interactive scares in a unique, horror themed atmosphere. Recommended for ages 10 and up, Platform 13 is not for the faint of heart. Are you brave enough to board the ghost train?

Doblar la Tierra

Through Nov. 2, 3-7 p.m.
<i>Doblar la Tierra</i>

There is currently a carved, wooden block inserted into the sidewalk in front of Random Parts (1206 13th Ave.), an experimental-leaning art gallery in Oakland's Eastlake district. If you press a piece of paper over the wood and rub it with graphite, a rough print of an old Ohlone village will appear. The piece is a reminder of what the Bay Area once looked like, before it was colonized and developed. The block is one portion of Doblar La Tierra, a show by Spanish artist Javier Arce. Arce is interested in the ambiguous distinction between space and place, and how notions of home and identity fit in between the two. Arce, who currently lives in Santander, Spain, recently returned to an old cabin in which he once lived, in the Cantabrian Mountains of northern Spain. When he arrived, he found that the frame had loosened and pieces of wood had fallen off. He took a few of these pieces and brought them to Oakland with him for his residency. Now they are arranged on the floor of Random Parts, offering a foundation on which the viewer may build his or her own contemplation of the topic. The show has many layers, including a zine with text by Monica Carballas, which offers an insightful and poetic rumination on the work. Finding the meaning behind the works might not be easy, but the process of searching for it is the real fruit of the experience.
