Oakland Art Murmur | First Fridays Art Walk

Oakland Art Murmur is a group of nearly 30 galleries in Oakland that have coordinated openings on the first Friday of every month. Oakland Art Murmur presents a free monthly evening art walk, known as the ‘Art Murmur’, when visual arts venues are collectively open to the public.

Every first Friday of the monthmember galleries are open to the public from 6-9 pm. Additionally Telegraph above Grand and below 27th is closed to car traffic, and craft, art, and food vendors are set up along this corridor as part of Oakland First Fridays .

Wander from gallery to gallery, see occasional outdoor movies, and find some new artists to love at venues like Classic Cars West, Manna Gallery, Mercury 20, Vessel Gallery and others.

This takes place throughout Oakland on the first Friday of every month from 6–9 pm, rain or shine.
