Explore Oakland Art Murmur’s Booming Uptown Arts District with a Free Walking Tour and Art Scavenger Hunt on Saturday, Sept. 20
Discover Uptown Oakland’s hidden art gems during Oakland Art Murmur’s September Saturday Stroll Gallery Walking Tour, held on September 20 from 2-4 p.m. On the 3rd Saturday of each month, the free walking tours (led by acclaimed artists and gallerists) give guests a rare opportunity to learn about Oakland’s nationally recognized galleries and exhibits with an educated guide. For September, Rachelle House of Rock Paper Scissors Collective will explore the topic of mixed-use gallery spaces in Uptown Oakland.
Held in conjunction with the monthly walking tour is the second Art Scavenger Hunt, providing families and individuals of all ages with a hands-on exploration of the neighborhood’s alternative art spaces. Prizes will be given out to participants who visit each gallery location. This special programming is made possible thanks to the support of The San Francisco Foundation.
In addition to the monthly walking tour, Oakland Art Murmur’s weekly Saturday Stroll is a popular alternative to the monthly First Friday Art Walks, providing visitors with a casual daytime tour through the neighborhood galleries. Member galleries are collectively open from 1-5 p.m., allowing guests to have a quieter, more focused experience with gallery owners and artists one-on-one. For more information on the Oakland Art Murmur Saturday Stroll participants, see the detailed map.
To join the free Uptown Gallery Walking Tour, meet at Rock Paper Scissors Collective on Saturday, September 20 at 2 p.m., located at 2278 Telegraph Ave. The Art Scavenger Hunt will ongoing from 1-4 p.m. at participating Uptown Oakland member galleries (starting at Rock Paper Scissors).
