Oakland First Fridays
art is women | May 4, 2018
“Art Is Women” was rained out in March, but we’re bringing it back for May as Oakland celebrates its first Art Month! Women were not always allowed a mic, let alone a paint brush or a platform. As the strength and creativity of women has spread across the world, we have come to see just how much women change and impact the world. Some of these world changers can be found right here in the Oakland First Fridays street festival. As we come together this month we’re giving recognition to the women who create, do, make and participate in First Fridays. When you come out to “Art Is Women” you’ll be supporting small local artists, food makers, performers and retailers run by women of the Bay Area and beyond. Event Highlights & Lineup TBA
About Oakland First Fridays
Oakland First Fridays is an inclusive art and community experience on the first Friday of each month from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. on Telegraph Avenue from West Grand to 27th Street. Oakland's KONO district springs to life with this event, where visitors can enjoy galleries, artist collectives, street artists, local culinary artisans, performers, musicians, dancers, DJ’s, and poets gathering for Oakland First Friday events. Thousands of people come from across the Bay Area and beyond to see and experience art, be inspired, eat great food, enjoy live music, and stroll through the amazing, eclectic city of Oakland. An economic impact report shows that the Oakland First Fridays has a major, positive economic impact on the KONO community.
