The Culture Trip picked Oakland Art Murmur as one of their 2015 San Francisco Local Favorite
By Tony Bear
The Bay Area is Ground Zero for art and culture. The visual arts are well represented in a number of world-renowned museums and galleries. Add in the smaller, homegrown galleries, and the number of places to enjoy art can be mind-boggling. A few days of prowling the Bay Area art scene might be chicken soup for the soul of any artist or art aficionado. Organize your ‘art immersion’ tour by breaking it into a week of day trips. Bring your favorite walking shoes and have fun watching your pedometer click off the miles!

TGIF in Oakland
The Oakland First Friday Art Murmur evening gallery walk is a rain or shine monthly event. Most of the Oakland Art Murmur member galleries stay open well into the evening. The occasional wine tasting helps mellow out visits. Click over to the Oakland Art Murmur website and plan parking/transportation, your starting point, and your route.
