Art Murmur: Oaklandâ€™s FREE First Fridays
With the markers of Halloween behind us and Thanksgiving ahead, we Bay Area dwellers know that there is very little time before the months of incessant rain arrive to ruin our outdoor fun. So make use of the next few weekends! If you’ve never been to the Oakland Art Murmur, then you should make it a priority to attend this Friday.
Oakland’s First Fridays are like San Francisco’s First Thursdays, only a little dirtier (as in bike grease), a little crunchier (as in granola), and a little yarnier (as in the art and the audience alike are rife with crocheted and knit materials). Oakland’s version of the FREE monthly gallery crawl has less FREE wine and more bagged 40s, less shiny haircuts and more white-kid dreadlocks, less SF hipsters and more'well, Oakland hipsters. There is a reception at 5pm for Sebastien Lapointe and Andrew Benson at Johansson Projects (2300 Telegraph). Then go on to enjoy the rest of the galleries. Mark your calendars. Do it now.
