Art Murmur is a night of open galleries held the first Friday of each month primarily in the Uptown, Koreatown/Northgate, downtown, and Jack London neighborhoods of Oakland, California, drawing 25,000 people. The event began in 2006 at the intersection of 23rd Street and Telegraph Avenue. 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. 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.
