If there’s one day of the week we wait for with bated breath — it’s Friday (no surprise there). But, throw a little art, commerce, and grub into the mix, and we’re beyond hyped. Well, that’s precisely what goes down at Oakland’s storied Art Murmur. Every first Friday of the month, gals and guys flock to all parts of the East Bay (Uptown, Jack London Square, and Temescal) for a creative scene brimming with activity, from pop-up restos (oh hey, Rice Paper Scissors!) and street art to auctions and lots of shopping.
Since it only comes along once a month, we’re always on the edge of our seats waiting to book it to the sweet fest. Naturally, it often brings out some of the most vibrant ensembles around that we just had to document. Ready to be impressed by the bevy of art hoppers in all their East Bay finery? Click through our slideshow for 9 of the best outfits we spotted, and we’ll plan on catching you over the Bay Bridge next month!
