#ARTISPOWER Oakland First Fridays 1st Annual Fundraiser
Art Exhibition & Silent Auction
October 19th, 2017 from 5pm-9:30pm at Humanist Hall in Koreatown Oakland

Oakland, CA - Join Oakland First Fridays Street Festival for #ArtIsPower, our very first annual fundraiser to support local artists on Thursday evening, October 19th, 2017 from 5pm to 9:30pm at Humanist Hall - 390 27th Street, Oakland CA 94612.

Founded in 2006, Oakland First Fridays has grown to become one of the largest celebrations of art and culture in the world. Through our community-driven event, we are able to provide a platform for artists to showcase and sell their work to thousands of people each month, stimulating growth for local business and Oakland’s community of Do-It-Yourself creatives. Oakland First Fridays is an almost entirely volunteer run organization, and it takes a massive collaborative effort to keep the event thriving each month. The event relies almost exclusively on sponsors and individual donations to keep the event safe, free and inclusive to all.

We need your support to keep going strong! Join us for a wonderful event that will include: Interactive Art Art Exhibition and Silent Auction Drinks and Food from local culinary artisans Celebrity guests performances AND MORE!

With your purchase of a ticket to #ArtIsPower, you will contribute to sustaining the longevity of Oakland First Fridays, and allow us to create more opportunities to support local interactive artists, performers, and musicians that fill the streets with creativity, passion, and love each and every month.

Call For Artists: Artists and art lovers are invited to submit work for inclusion in the art exhibition and silent auction for Oakland First Fridays 1st Annual #ArtIsPower fundraiser. The money raised from the #ArtIsPower fundraiser will go towards sustaining the Oakland First Fridays street festival as a free, public event, with the lowest artisan vendor fees in the region. A portion of the proceeds will also go towards supporting the live performances and interactive artists who share their talent with the community each month at Oakland First Fridays.
