Oakland Mural Festival
Presented by Visit Oakland
Come out May 12-19 for the Oakland Mural Festival presented by Bay Area Mural Festival.
The Oakland Mural Festival will bring together master muralists and Oakland youth through a series of artist residencies and workshops culminating in the painting of at least 9 new murals in Jack London District of Oakland.
Oakland Mural Festival will use the mural arts to engage East Bay youth, local Bay Area artists and the Oakland community through beautification and place-making activities. The festival will call attention to social issues, honor the legacy of Oakland’s historically industrial waterfront, and celebrate Oakland's cultural identity.
The week long festival will end with a closing celebration in Jack London Square on Saturday, May 19th, 2018 from 12pm-5pm with community painting, performances by local musicians and dancers, and kids activities.
The Oakland Mural Festival is part of Oakland Art Month.
