Art Murmur is a night of open galleries held the first Friday of each month[1] primarily in the Uptown, Koreatown/Northgate, downtown, and Jack London neighborhoods of Oakland, California, drawing 25,000 people.[2] The event began in 2006 at the intersection of 23rd Street and Telegraph Avenue;[3] in 2012, the street festival component was taken over by local community groups and the City of Oakland, becoming the "Oakland First Fridays″ street festival along Telegraph Avenue.[4] The Oakland Art Murmur organization has since refocused its energies as a community of diverse art spaces throughout the City of Oakland, offering additional programming such as a weekly Saturday Stroll art walk and monthly guided walking tours.[5]
