Every month – rain or shine! On the first Friday of every month, Oakland Art Murmur hosts an evening art walk featuring member galleries and mixed-use venues collectively open to the public. Oakland Art Murmur (OAM) began organizing the free, monthly art walk — known as The Art Murmur — in 2006. Today, OAM is an organization of over 40 galleries that produces weekly art walks, guided tours and other exclusive events. Learn more at About Oakland Art Murmur.
