Host: Michael Krasny

Thu, Nov 1, 2012 — 10:30 AM

It started off as a monthly art walk between eight galleries in 2006. Today, Oakland’s Art Murmur has exploded, drawing as many as 20,000 people to downtown for a vibrant street party featuring live performances, food trucks and more than 30 participating galleries and venues. We talk to the organizers of Art Murmur and First Friday about the event.
