Oakland has long been home to innovators, creatives, and artists that collectively form the soul of The Town. Oakland Art Month is dedicated to promote events, performances, and shows that highlight the diversity of artists and work created in Oakland.

 

One of the most anticipated events of Oakland Art Month is the inaugural Oakland Mural Festival. From May 12-19, murals will be simultaneously painted throughout the Jack London Square neighborhood, with a closing party on May 19th.

 

Blurry Vision, a two-day hip-hop and R&B music festival running May 12 & 13, is also one of Art Month's main attractions. Headliners include SZA, Migos and Oakland’s own Kamaiyah.
