Oakland Art Murmur First Fridays

Art MurmerOctober 5th from 5 to 10 PM
Telegraph Avenue between 19th and 27th Streets

Eight-blocks of Uptown Telegraph are blocked off for a street festival including live music, food trucks and vendors. Simultaneously, from 6 to 9 PM, 21 member galleries and 9 mixed-use venues are open to the public and hold artists receptions.

If you are more interested in getting in to see the art, you can follow this schedule: Visit Uptown galleries and get dinner earlier in the evening (5 to 7 PM), and then head down the corridor to enjoy the Mid-Town, Old Oakland, and Jack London venues. They have some wonderful shows. For ease of travel, use Broadway, not Telegraph, to access 26th, 25th and 23rd Street galleries.

There is also a Saturday Stroll every Saturday with 17 galleries and 8 mixed-use venues open from 1 to 5 PM. Many galleries also hold special events on Saturdays, including receptions, artists talks, concerts, and tours. There is so much art going on in Oakland these days!

Visit the Oakland Art Murmur website for information about what shows are up this week, and learn more about special events.
